The British tradition of minority government

First Edition

Timothy Noël Peacock

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Draws on evidence from recently declassified documents to challenge long-established myths about British politics.
  • Reveals a distinctive British political tradition that has a global impact on reconceptualising international minority government theory and practice.
  • Has a wide appeal to scholars, political practitioners, students, and members of the public, making accessible the paradigm of minority governance to the generation of newly engaged voters.
