Politics and the People: A History of British Democracy Since 1918 by Kevin Jefferys
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In "Politics and the People", Kevin Jefferys traces the history of modern British democracy through the eyes of its people. It is the first full-scale history of popular politics, from the inception in 1918 of enfranchisement as we know it, to voter apathy and low turnout in 2005. Jefferys interrogates questions such as: was there ever a 'golden age' of public political involvement? And if so, what has caused its decline over the last few years? Through his analysis of how, why and when the British public have voted, Kevin Jefferys offers fresh insight into our relationship with politicians, demanding a thought-provoking rethink of our political history.
