Bringing together a completely new set of specially-commissioned chapters by leading authorities, Developments in British Politics 7 provides an accessible state-of-the-art introduction to politics and political change in the UK. It provides a systematic assessment of New Labour in government focusing in particular on continuities and contrasts between its first and second terms and with traditional social democracy. A central innovation is the concept of multi-focal politics to explain the consequences of globalization, Europeanisation and devolution for the nature and distribution of power in the UK.
