The third edition of Politics UK builds on the success of previous editions while bringing the text right up to date with enhanced coverage of contemporary political issues. Written by six leading academic analysts, it embodies the changes wrought by the 1997 general election; the developments in government relating to the institutions of government as well as political culture, the media and political ideas. Divided into seven parts, it opens by analysing the historical context of UK politics, moving on to the contemporary context (social and economic structure, political culture and participation), political ideologies and political concepts before addressing the representative process (elections, voting behaviour, media, parties and pressure groups). Followed by the legislative process (changing constitution, the Crown, the Commons and the Lords), the executive process (Cabinet and Prime Minister, departments and civil servants, central and local government), the Judiciary and the Politics of Law and Order before the book is concluded by chapters on policy (economic, social, environmental, foreign and defence policy, Ireland and Great Britain and European integration).
Improved pedagogy, design, and the use of additional colour provides an attractive, stimulating and accessible key text for students.
