The fifth edition of this best-selling textbook serves as an introduction to the study of Parliament and Government in modern Britain and has been written primarily to help candidates taking GCE examinations on British Government. The book is not only a straightforward account of how British political institutions work but also discusses many of the controversial issues affecting the British political scene in the 1980's. The reader's attention is drawn to such thought-provoking questions as: Is the Cabinet too powerful? Is the House of Lords superfluous? Is the procedure of the House of Commons adequate to cope effectively with modern conditions? The text, reading lists and examination questions in this new edition have been thoroughly revised and updated. A new feature is the addition of Case Studies, to provide the student with practical exercises linked to the process of government.
