Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0719030471, Hardcover)

This textbook analyzes the major political parties in Britain - their ideals, organization, electoral records and prospects and the effect they have on British politics and society. The authors begin by asking why parties exist and then examine the changing electoral structure and shifting policy context of Britain's "party system". They assess the history, philosophy, organization and leadership of the major parties, the shifts in these areas during the Thatcher years and the questions posed to all the British parties by the prospect of European integration - an issue with profound implications for both the conduct and scope of party politics in Britain. Although a strong sense of history provides the context for the analysis, the book is also fully up-to-date, with an account of the Conservatives under John Major, the Labour Party inherited by John Smith and the challenges facing Paddy Ashdown's Liberal Democrats.
