Parliament in British Politics (Contemporary Political Studies Series)

Parliament in British Politics (Contemporary Political Studies Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The role and significance of parliament in the British political system has changed dramatically in the past decade with the setting up of elected assemblies in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the extension of European law making and reform of parliament itself, especially in relation to the House of Lords. This major new text by a leading academic authority who is also a parliamentarian himself revisits the central question of his highly-acclaimed earlier text Does Parliament Matter? in relation both to its role in governance and its relationship to the citizen.

Book News Annotation:

The first edition of this text, published as Does Parliament Matter? in 1993, looked at the relationship of the British Parliament to the executive and to the citizen. For this new edition, Norton (government, U. of Hull, UK) has expanded his coverage to account for the development of the European Union, the removal of hereditary peers in the House of Lords, and other changes to the constitutional landscape of the United Kingdom. He has also sought to develop a more explicit theoretical framework.
