For students of developments in British politics, the book provides the essential guide to key domestic and foreign policy choices, including the Conservative Party₂s agenda for economic policy, reform of the public services, welfare reform, law, order and immigration, the environment, constitutional reform, foreign affairs and defence, the European Union, and international development.
