British Politics since 1945 (0631190759) cover image
British Politics since 1945 offers a comprehensive overview of postwar British politics ideal for introductory students and general readers alike. The book balances a narrative of the major events and personalities of the postwar political scene with a critical assessment of the recurrent issues and concerns of political debate. It also analyses the main idealogical perspectives operating within party politics since the Second Wolrd War - from the Right, the Centre and the Left - showing how these dominant groups have viewed developments and expressed their ambitions over the last fifty years.
  • Succinct chronological account complemented with critical, thematic assessment of ideas
  • Covers central topic on all introductory politics and postwar history
  • Extensive use of tabular material, and appendices for reference
