Review:

"It is always a pleasure to open it and I know of no more helpful guide to the mysteries of
British politics." - Jørgen Sevaldsen, University of Copenhagen

'It is multi-authored and is able therefore to cover a  wider range of topics - social, economic and European policy.'

'...make generous use of diagrams, tables, charts and boxed inserts. These enliven the text, facilitate the assimilation of information and, by pithy and provocative comment, help badger the sleepy mind.  Equally welcome... accompanying websites with useful lists of web-based resources.  For a computer-savvy generation this is becoming an indispensable aid.'

The Times Higher, November 2004
