"Additionally, while castigated as undemocratic by its critics, the National government did manage to preserve democratic principles in Britain when they were being undermined and destroyed in much of Europe. Negatively, too, the coalition offered Churchill's wartime government of 1940 a model of co-operation between parties, which made it in many ways suspiciously similar to its lauded successor."--BOOK JACKET. "This is the first book for students on British politics of the period. It brings together a mass of specialized literature to make clear and interesting a critical decade which ended in the most severe test any British government has ever had to face."--Jacket.

"Democratisation in Britain is a novel reinterpretation of British social and political history since 1800 in the light of the continuing debate about democratisation. As such, the book goes far beyond standard histories of political reform. In common with politics in Northern Europe, North America and Australasia, Britain's democratisation began early and in highly favourable circumstances. The process took place in stages, only half-consciously and in the context of a generally benign economic cycle. The country possessed a vibrant civil society at most levels of its adult population, along with a flexible, competitive and opportunistic set of political elites." "Countries undergoing democratisation since 1918 have been far less fortunate, and the process is thereby much more difficult. Thus this book may be seen as portraying an 'ideal type' against which to compare and contrast these later experiences." "Democratisation in Britain combines the disciplines of political science and history, and will be of interest to scholars and students in both fields."--BOOK JACKET.

Sterling in Decline takes the devaluations of 1931, 1949 and 1967 as a metaphor for Britain's changing position in the world economy. It traces the decline of the pound sterling from the world's pre-eminent currency, together with the dollar's rise to prominence. It also challenges the conventional wisdom regarding the implications of events in foreign exchange markets, and of British foreign economic policy generally, for the macroeconomic performance of the British economy. This second edition features a new introduction that frames the analysis in light of subsequent contributions and brings the story up to date. It draws out the implications of sterling's troubled 20th century history for the country's decision of whether to adopt the euro.

The dominant force in twentieth-century British politics, the Conservative Party has nevertheless been seriously neglected and misunderstood. Conservative Century systematically surveys the history of the Party from the "Khaki" election of 1900 to John Major's victory of 1992 and beyond. Ignoring traditional boundaries between history and political science, and drawing on Conservative Party Archives, each of the authoritative teams of contributors pursues an important theme within three main areas: the Party's composition and structure; its ideas, policies and actions in government; and its public image and sources of support.
