Crisis and Consensus in British Politics focuses on the collapse of the post-war consensus in the mid 1970s crisis and the emergence of a new consensus in the 1990s. It follows this process through six key policy areas including civil service reform, privatization, macro-economic management, and relations with Europe.

'This is an excellent history of British Politics in the twentieth century. It concentrates on the strategies politicians adopted to cope with Britain's retreat as a world and relative economic decline. It is excellent as a textbook for British politics courses, but can also be read as a lively history by the general reader.' - Paul Hirst, Professor of Social Theory, Birbeck College, University of London 'Covering developments in the British state and party politics from the Industrial Revolution right up until the present day, and focussing particularly on the breakdown and revitalisation in consensus between the 1970s and 1990s, this fascinating and innovative study is set to become a book which all students of British politics, undergraduate and postgraduate, will need to own.' - Professor Ben Pimlott, Goldsmiths College
