First published in 1983, this textbook is now published in a completely revised and updated form to take full account of changes in policy-making in the second half of Mrs Thatcher's first decade in power. It provides an original approach to the study and understanding of government in Britain by examining the politics surrounding the acquisition of resources necessary for policy making such as money, land and labour; the division of these between policy programmes and the implementation of these programmes as well as their effects upon the wider state. The approach thus shows not only what government is but also what it does (or chooses not to do), why and with what consequences for the citizen.
