Description

The British Polity is an engaging and comprehensive survey of the structure and process of British government. Offering an insider’s analysis, Philip Norton examines the debates surrounding Britain’s political history and culture, constitution, parties and elections, branches of government, media, and relations with the European Union. Throughout, The British Polity follows a theme of continuity and change that draws on historical and institutional knowledge and that helps to explain contemporary British politics.

“This is the best book available on British government. Norton explains perfectly how institutions work in practice as well as in theory; he gives a nuanced and balanced picture of both structure and process.”–James Alt, Harvard University
