Overview

Politics in Transition is a unique and innovative introduction to the key debates about politics and the state in the United Kingdom today.

The authors draw on a wide range of disciplines - politics, sociology and economics - to highlight the issue of structural change and uneven development. The authors locate the United Kingdom firmly within the world political system but also investigate the roots of its individuality within that system. They analyse the ways in which the country is itself fragmented regionally, socially and at a local level.

Politics in Transition is a course book for the Open University course, D314 Restructuring Britain.
