Synopsis

This book examines the role of the British Conservative and Labour parliamentary parties in the development of government policy since 1945. Focusing on major policy fields--agriculture, education, housing, defense, the economy, and Scottish affairs--Brand argues that the influence of back-benchers has been consistently underestimated, and that the interdependence of front- and back-benchers frequently produces surprising and significant effects on policy development.
