By Donley T. Studlar
This thoughtful introduction to British politics explores a country undergoing a painful transition as the twenty-first century approaches. Informed throughout by a comparative public policy perspective, this book surveys British policy, institutions, and behavior since World War II. Donley Studlar analyzes challenges facing contemporary Britain and suggests the likely official responses in areas ranging from constitutional change to foreign policy. Considering issues such as domestic economic and social welfare policy, Studlar also looks at noneconomic regulation of individual behavior and group relations- especially as it applies to minorities. Weaving together a wealth of material, Studlar assesses the future course of Britain at a crucial time in its development.
