Product description


[The Conservatives Since 1945] crosses disciplinary boundaries - testing the findings of political science against rigorous historical investigation remarkably comprehensive and persuasive [Bale] has the unusual gift of presenting a forensic analysis in compelling prose. - Mark Garnett, Times Higher Education --Times Higher Education


A book of the highest quality ... significantly different from the existing books on twentieth or post-war Conservative history ... Academics will find the book has considerable academic depth through its engagement with a diverse range of sources and approaches. However, the general reader who is interested in politics and parties, can engage with the analysis as it is jargon free. [The book] seeks to interest the reader by communicating in an accessible way. This is to be commended and many political scientists could learn from Bale and abandon their convoluted methodologies and tortuous prose that serve to alienate rather than educate. Above all else, this is a book that will be of tremendous value to students of the Conservative Party and British political history generally for many decades. - Dr Timothy Heppell, London School of Economics and Political Science --London School of Economics and Political Science
