The Reordering of British Politics clarifies for the new student the terrain of British politics today. Building on Dennis Kavanagh's classic Thatcherism and British Politics: The End of Consensus? , this clear and engaging text assesses the influence of the Thatcher era and the reordering of British politics that has occurred in her wake. Covering the transition to Majorism and the impact of John Major on the Conservative Party and British politics, it also tracks the development of a new consensus in post-Thatcher and post-Socialism Britain, and the evolution of Labour without Socialism. The author has also included a Postscript on the impact of the 1997 General Election results.
