This new edition of "British Politics" is a comprehensive textbook which not only describes but also evaluates the British system of politics and government in modern politics science terms. Dennis Kavanagh examines the historical, constitutional, and cultural context of British politics. He deals with the familiar topics of the Cabinet, Parliament, the Civil Service, parties, pressure groups and local government. In addition he discusses often neglected issues such as political culture, corporatism, the police and judiciary, the mass media, political recruitment and political style, and the politics of economic decline. The concluding chapters consider the policy process and discuss the question of political power and the state of politics in Britain at the moment.
