Politics at the Edge was the theme of the 1999 PSA Annual Conference. This volume brings together nearly twenty of the liveliest, most thoughtful and original papers from over 200 which were presented at the conference. The major traditional strengths of British political science are well represented with papers on parties, political theory and the history of political thought but so too are less familiar areas such as the politics of Latin America and the politics of poststructuralism.
