Reprint. Transferred to digital printing. Previous ed.: 1996.

This text is a summary of major political developments in British history of the last 140 years.

The growth of democracy and the growth in the power of the state in the late 19th and early 20th century are outlined against a background of party politics.

The changing nature of British society and Britain's role on the world stage are analyzed.

The third edition brings the coverage right up to date, and includes new material on: domestic affairs from 1992 to 2001; John Major's government; the creation of "New" Labour and the "Third Way"; Blair's first ministry; developments in Northern Ireland from 1995 through the Easter Peace Deal into 2001; and the 2001 general election results and implications.
