Review:

‘A contemporary classic. This second edition is, just like the first, ahead of the debate. It brings together the very latest empirical findings to offer a plethora of fresh insights into perhaps our greatest current political problem - that of citizen disaffection and disengagement.’ - Colin Hay, Sciences Po, Paris, France

‘Written in an accessible and digestible style, this book addresses fundamental issues about democracy that are important for any student of politics to engage with.’ – Wyn Grant, University of Warwick, UK

‘A great overview of politics that will be enjoyed by students and engaged citizens alike... it tackles big questions in a way that is grounded in the discipline and yet accessible.’ – Paul Taggart, University of Sussex, UK
