This text examines parliamentary government in theory and practice, drawing widely on academic research and making extensive use of Parliament's own records. Themes and concepts are illustrated by historical, recent and contemporary examples. Where appropriate, comparisons are made with practice in other countries. Boxes set out themes and concepts, figures illustrate the physical layout and tables provide detailed information on Parliament's operation.

Michael Rush is Emeritus Professor of Politics at the University of Exeter.
'I know no other book on Parliament that gives such a full and clear picture of what Parliament actually does. To learn about institutions is to learn very little unless we are told what they actually do, how they work and how they are used--and abused. Michael Rush has written a small masterpiece fusing the best of the old institutional school with best of the modern process and realism approach.'--Sir Bernard Crick
'Scholarly, well-written and wide-ranging, Parliament Today merits a prominent position on the bookshelves of all specialist parliamentary scholars and, indeed, on the bookshelves of everyone with a serious interest in modern UK government and politics.'--Gavin Drewry, Royal Holloway, University of London
'Michael Rush, one of the leading authorities on the UK parliament, compresses within the covers of this books over 40 years' experience of analysis, reflection (even affection), and sheer good sense...'--David Judge, University of Strathclyde
