Rational Choice and British Politics by Iain McLean

Book Description

This engaging and original study, by one of Britain's leading scholars of rational choice theory, explores the course of British parliamentary politics over the last 150 years. McLean marries an appealing combination of social science and analytical narrative history to the great turning points in British politics - the Repeal of the Corn Law; the Victorian crisis of the Liberal and Conservative Parties; the Irish Question and Lloyd George's solution to it; the New Liberal origins of the welfare state; the politics of race and empire under Chamberlain and Powell; and the politics of 'there is no alternative' under Margaret Thatcher.

Scotland's Choices, now fully revised for the critical last few months before the referendum, explains the choice that Scotland will have to make in September 2014.

Legally Married by Iain McLean Legally Married, Paperback (December 2013)

What does it mean to be legally married today? This book combines insights from history and law from the UK and Scotland with international examples of how marriage law has developed. It shows how assumptions about marriage are contestable on various grounds, separates fact from fiction and explains the claims in terms of their historical context.

What's Wrong with the British Constitution? by Iain McLean What's Wrong with the British Constitution?, Paperback (July 2012)

A bravura critique of the traditional interpretation of the British constitution. The book demolishes many of the myths surrounding it, but also goes on to suggest a constructive alternative.
