Product description

Review

A timely reflection on the challenges faced by democratic politics. (Birgit Schippers, London School of Economics Review of Books)

This is a brave effort. It is lucid, learned and ... jargon-free. Above all, Flinders' message is one that cannot be too often restated. (New Statesman)

His book Delegated Governance and the British State (Oxford University Press, 2008) was awarded the W.J.M. Mackenzie Prize 2009 for the best book in political science published that year.
