A Glossary of UK Government and Politics is a handy reference guide to the events, personnel, policies and institutions relevant to the government and politics of the United Kingdom. It includes a series of authoritative definitions and explanations and sharp vignettes of some of the leading characters who have graced the political scene in recent years. It is ideal for students who come across references which are new to them and on which they want or need to know more. The entries are accessible and manageable, yet sufficiently informative, offering basic details and something more by way of interpretation and insight into basic arguments and current controversies.
