      Published on Sep 4, A short animation that introduces the UK Parliament, looking at its history and how it works today. This is an ideal teaching resource for secondary students studying. In the book, you'll discover the origins of democracy, political ideologies and the British political state, how elections and British political parties really work, the lowdown on parliament, insight into local politics and devolution, examination of British politics on the world stage, and so much more.

    This unique textbook addresses the `big questions' of political science: how the state operates and how it has been conceptualised in the United Kingdom. By focusing on parliamentarism and the key institution of parliament, it analyzes and illuminates both the theory and practice of the state. The result is a refreshingly lucid antidote to drier studies of the British constitution.   Friday 21 February House of Commons. Set your default view. Set your default view.
