British Politics since 1945 offers a comprehensive overview of post-war British politics for introductory students and general readers alike. The book balances a narrative of the major events and personalities of the post-war political scene with a critical assessment of the recurrent issues and concerns of political debate. It also analyses the main ideological perspectives operating within party politics since 1945, indicating how these have both shaped and interpreted post-war British politics. The book makes extensive use of primary sources, including autobiographies of the main political personalities since 1945, whilst also providing valuable appendices such as a glossary, chronology of key events and important legislation, and a list of post-war prime ministers. It is the ideal starting point for anyone interested in the history and politics of post-war Britain.
