Description - Postwar British Politics in Perspective by David Marsh

This broad-ranging and original text provides an accessible introduction to British politics since 1945, challenging many well-established orthodoxies. It focuses on conceptions of political consensus, evolution and transformation, continuity and discontinuity in presenting a consistent and distinctive account of social, political and economic change in the postwar years. The book offers a novel perspective on the development of the British state and of British politics over this period.In so doing, it represents a lively and engaging contribution to existing debates, demonstrating to students the highly contested nature of political change in the postwar years. The book, published at a crucial moment in the evolution of the British state, provides a reassessment of the era of Conservative dominance as well as an account of the meaning and role of New Labour couched in the broader context of the postwar years.Postwar British Politics in Perspective will be essential reading for all students and academics concerned with questions of social, political and economic change in Britain and for all those interested in the prospects for British politics.
