British Politics: The Basics, Hardback Book

British Politics: The Basics Hardback

Part of the The Basics series


Over the last two decades British politics has undergone a remarkable transformation.

While some components of the system have been eroded, such as voter turnout and membership of the big parties, other parts have flourished, such as nationalist parties, the insurgent UKIP, as well as the new media.

British Politics: The Basics analyses these changes and places them within the context of the evolution of British society from absolute monarchy to representative democracy.

It considers each of the major components of British politics, such as the Monarchy and the House of Lords, the Commons, voting behaviour, parties and pressure groups, the Prime Minister and Cabinet, devolution, local government, and foreign policy.

Its contents include coverage of recent events such as the Scottish Referendum and the 2015 General Election. This readable and comprehensive introduction will be of key interest to A-level students, undergraduates and those new to the study of British politics.
