Concise, comprehensive and accessible, Exploring British Politics presents an insightful approach to British politics with a special emphasis on developments since the 2010 general election and the formation of Britain’s first coalition government since 1945. Designed to stimulate critical analysis and provoke lively debate, it provides new perspectives on two key themes – the health of British democracy and the transition from traditional models of government to more flexible forms of ‘governance’.

The third edition is revised and updated throughout, giving full consideration to recent developments which have affected all areas of UK politics, including:

  • The 2010 general election, which featured the first ever televised leader debates and led to a coalition government
  • Scandals involving the media as well as politicians
  • A referendum which rejected electoral reform
  • Elections to the devolved institutions in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and further changes in the governance of those countries

Whilst framed in a discussion of the essential historical background of British politics, contemporary issues are to the fore throughout and readers are encouraged to scrutinise what is often taken for granted and to develop their own thoughts and ideas. Whether studying the subject for the first time or revisiting it, Exploring British Politics is the ideal undergraduate text.

Mark Garnett is Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at Lancaster University. He is the author, co-author or editor of numerous books and articles on British politics.

 

Philip Lynch is a Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Leicester.
