Where does power lie in Britain today? Is our system of government still
fit for purpose? A revelatory guide from the esteemed expert in British
government and politicsThe British system has been radically
transformed in recent decades, far more than most of us realize. As
acclaimed political scientist and bestselling author Anthony King shows,
this transformation lies at the heart of British politics today.
Imagining - or pretending - that the British political system and
Britain's place in the world have not greatly changed, our political
leaders consistently promise more than they can perform.
Political and economic power is now widely dispersed both inside and outside the UK, but Westminster politicians still talk the language of Attlee and Churchill. How exactly has the British system changed? Where does power now lie? In Who Governs Britain?, King offers the first assessment in many years of Britain's governing arrangements as a whole, providing much needed context for the upcoming election.
