A highly personal and admittedly biased introduction to some aspects of politics. As a background, Bali Rai looks at how the institutions of government work and at what the different parties stand for and some of the ideologies on which they may, or may not, rest their core beliefs.

Thought provoking, this is a valuable source of information from which to challenge whatâ€™s on the news.
