Barnes & Noble® offers a wide and ever-growing selection of current affairs books. Take a deep dive into current events and the world’s most important political issues with thousands of titles on civil & human rights, economics, international relations, U.S. politics, and more. The fifth edition of British Politics is a significantly expanded work that draws on the contribution of three new political scientists and redresses the balance between the historical context of British Politics and key theoretical debates. British Politics 5/e overcomes the traditional problem of looking at Britain in isolation and the narrow, institution-based approach to politics by re /5(6).

  However, given the constraints of the format (broadly covering everything you might need to know about the British political system) it is an excellent book, and unparalleled in my opinion. The chapters are encyclopaedic and well chosen, and cover everything you are likely to encounter on an introductory-level degree module/5(6). ADVERTISEMENTS: Political Systems: Meaning, Functions and Types of Political Systems! Meaning: Each society must have a political system in order to maintain recognized procedures for allocating valued resources. In large complex societies, many decisions must be made about the duties and responsibilities of citizens and also about the rights and privileges.
