'...an invaluable text book, which may be confidently recommended for students of both politics and history.' - Peter Madgwick, English Historical Review Written by the best-selling authors of Contemporary British Politics, this major textbook provides an accessible, broad-ranging introduction to the evolution of political ideas, institutions and policies in Britain since 1945. The book starts with an assessment of the state of the nation as it emerged from the Second World War and an introduction to each post-war administration including innovative 'government boxes' and cabinet photographs. 10 thematic chapters analyse the key aspects of postwar British politics and a concluding chapter assesses the main theories and debates.
