What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Rigorously-researched, theoretically-informed, and, above all, incredibly readable, Politics and Governance in the UK is, quite simply, a tour de force of a textbook. It is an absolute 'must read' for all students of British politics'. – Nicola Smith, University of Birmingham, UK

'Comprehensive and accessible and yet engaging and innovative at the same time, the latest edition of this landmark text provides a judicious and creatively illustrated mix of theory, commentary and analysis. Moran brings the trials and tribulations of British politics alive as never before.' – Colin Hay, Sciences Po, France

Review of previous edition:

'Unlike many British politics texts, Moran succeeds in weaving theoretical debates directly into the narrative, producing a comprehensive and readable volume that is easily accessible to students both inside and outside the UK.' – Terrence Casey, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, USA, and Executive Director of the APSA British Politics Group

'Politics and Governance in the UK has established itself as the best introductory text for students of British politics. This new edition draws on the latest research and most recent political developments to provide an unrivalled account of the way Britain is governed. – Andrew Gamble, University of Sheffield and University of Cambridge, UK
