Parliamentary Reform at Westminster

Alexandra Kelso

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Adopts a historical institutional theory approach in order to analyse parliamentary reform, one of the first instances of this approach being used to map change in a formal political institution
  • Draws on a series of elite interviews conducted with key MPs and peers involved in the parliamentary reform debate - and so offers a detailed insight into the perceptions of those involved in the course of reform
  • Not only examines contemporary reform events, but also places them in their historical context
  • The only monograph on Westminster parliamentary reform, available at last in paperback
  • Westminster reform has heretofore been explored from a highly descriptive standpoint, whereas this book employs a sophisticated analytical approach
