The Oxford Handbook of British Politics Summary

The Oxford Handbook of British Politics by Matthew Flinders (Reader in Parliamentary Government and Governance at the University of Sheffield.)

The study of British politics has been reinvigorated in recent years as a generation of new scholars seeks to build upon a distinct disciplinary heritage while also exploring new empirical territory and finds much support and encouragement from previous generations in forging new grounds in relation to theory and methods. It is in this context that The Oxford Handbook of British Politics has been conceived. The central ambition of the Handbook is not just to illustrate both the breadth and depth of scholarship that is to be found within the field. It also seeks to demonstrate the vibrancy and critical self-refl ection that has cultivated a much sharper and engaging, and notably less insular, approach to the terrain it seeks to explore and understand. In this emphasis on critical engagement, disciplinary evolution, and a commitment to shaping rather than re-stating the discipline, The Oxford Handbook of British Politics is consciously distinctive.

The Oxford Handbook of British Politics Reviews

This is a book anyone seriously interested in the study of British politics should have on their bookshelf. It covers a large array of subjects, thus widening the scope of what is studied as British politics. * David Marsh, Political Studies Review *
Review from previous edition British politics was long feted and later neglected as an idiosyncratic system of dwindling significance in liberal democratic politics. Now, after a series of sweeping constitutional transformations this impressive Handbook reveals a UK politics that is increasingly part of the European and democratic mainstreams once again. In place of the tired partisan verities of conventional British political analysis, the authors offer much stronger modern political science accounts. * Professor Patrick Dunleavy, London School of Economics and Political Science *
