4.0 out of 5 stars A road map to the corridors of power, 14 May 2007
This review is from: Who Runs This Place?: The Anatomy of Britain in the 21st Century (Paperback)
The politicians blame Europe, business blames the politicians, the newspapers blame trade unionists and, of course, immigrants, the conspiracy theorists blame the spooks and the spooks blame the trade unions- everyone claims its someone else running the show, and ITS ALL THEIR FAULT.

Sampson has been mapping the concentric circles of opinion, influence and decision making in the United Kingdom for forty years. His Anatomy of Britain serves as a frozen picture of the ebbs and flows of power in the UK. He looks in depth as the changing relationship between Parliament, the civil service and the government, the role of the parties, business and the defence industry, opinion formers and power brokers.

Anyone wanting to understand where to look to see who is pulling the strings and whos strings are being pulled should start here.
