Praise for the first edition:

'[C]learly written and presents an insight into British Politics which is both illuminating and informative. [T]he work fills a definite niche within the existing literature in this topic area of British Politics. It builds upon other work in this field but, at the same time, provides a more detailed overview and is very much up-to-date with contemporary events.' - Jacqui Briggs, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Lincoln, UK

'I was struck by the accessibility of the writing. The reader is not condescended but neither are they bamboozled with jargon and terminology. [T]he [text] is crisp and succinct in its writing.' - Nick Randall, School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, University of Newcastle, UK

'The breadth, width and depth of the book are highly impressive.The book encourages students to explore topics in broad terms. Comparisons between the British system and those of other countries assist in understanding British Politics. Information is presented in a variety of interesting and exciting ways. For these reasons, I would certainly recommend this book for my students.' --- John McLean, Lecturer in Politics, University of Greenwich, UK
