about

The five-volume Scott Report on Arms to Iraq was remarkable because its subject matter entailed a lengthy investigation into all three branches of the British Government: the executive, the legislative, and Parliament. In Under the Scott-Light, distinguished experts from the fields of law,politics, and public administration carefully examine the Report, contributing incisive analyses of the people, processes, and policy considerations involved; exposing the generally secretive world of Whitehall, including its darkest corners, in which the security and intelligence services and thearms trade are seemingly obliged to operate. Under the Scott-Light provides the reader with a rare opportunity to read about the actualite of the governmental machine in operation.
Brian Thompson and F.F. Ridley are at the University of Liverpool.
