This thoughtful introduction to British politics explores a country undergoing a painful transition as the twenty-first century approaches. Informed throughout by a comparative public policy perspective, this book surveys British policy, institutions, and behavior since World War II. Donley Studlar analyzes challenges facing contemporary Britain and suggests the likely official responses in areas ranging from constitutional change to foreign policy. Considering issues such as domestic economic and social welfare policy, Studlar also looks at noneconomic regulation of individual behavior and group relations?especially as it applies to minorities. Weaving together a wealth of material, Studlar assesses the future course of Britain at a crucial time in its development.
Donley Studlar is Eberly Family Distinguished Professor of Political Science at West Virginia University. Since 1994, he has served as executive secretary of the British Politics Group.

From Our Editors

This volume is destined to become a trendsetter in comparative politics. When confronted with the large question of whether great powers, like Britain, are in a stage of political and economic 'decline, ' Studlar points the way by his application of public policy analysis to explain how and why government policies have evolved in the economic welfare, foreign, and social regulatory domains. - Raymond Tatalovich, Loyola University, Chicago.
