About this book


A comprehensive and systematic introduction to the key political issues in Britain today and their impact on the electoral and policy process. The author shows how the agenda of debate has evolved from the period of postwar consensus through the rise and fall of the New Right to the impact of New Labour today. Particular attention is devoted to the role of the media and to recent experiences such as the BSE crisis, sleaze and Britain's position in relation to Europe.
