An incisive examination of Britain today, which breaks from traditional studies, and takes a new approach to account for massive changes in the make-up of the nation.
Over the last twenty years Britain has changed from being governed as a unitary state to a country ruled by the interplay of various forces: central government, the market, public-private partnerships, new local government structures (eg. the new Mayoral system), greater regional autonomy as well as the EU and transnational businesses and organizations.
In their earlier book Interpreting British Governance, Bevir and Rhodes examined changes in British government by setting out an interpretative approach to British political science, which focussed on an aggregate analysis of British political traditions. This new study builds on this work to:
provide a theoretical defence of situated agency located in the historical context of British political science
compare their approach to British political science with others including, post-structural and institutional analysis
present a general account of governance as the context for ethnographic analyses of governance in action
deliver studies of the consumers of public services, the National Health Service, government departments and policy networks.
This book will be of great interest to advanced students and researchers of political theory, public policy, British politics and British history.
