OverviewCredits: 15.0Overlap: NonePrerequisite: NoneBritish Politics is not just about the institutions like cabinet, parliament, parties and pressure groups. Nor is it simply about voting and elections. It's also an ongoing attempt by more or less self-interested actors to cope with the issues, conflicts, opportunities and threats thrown up by time and chance, as well as by underlying economic and social developments. Using a thematic rather than a chronological approach, this module delves back decades and brings things bang-up-to-date in order to provide you with an academic understanding of why, politically, we are as we are today.Assessment: 100.0% CourseworkLevel: 4
