About this book

Specialists in Conservative Party politics examine the effectiveness of the Cameron led coalition. The contributors examine Cameron as leader and Prime Minister; the Conservatives' modernisation strategy; the level of ideological coherence in 'liberal conservatism'; and the impact of the coalition on a range of policy areas and on 'New' Labour.

Reviews

'This work is far from being just another assessment of the Coalition's first year in office. In addition to the in-depth examination of Cameron's statecraft strategy, Heppell and Seawright offer a compelling analysis of the Conservative Party's ideological trajectory under Cameron, particularly in relation to a New Labour legacy.'

- Agnès Alexandre-Collier, Professor, Université de Bourgogne, France.

'Packed with authoritative, detailed and insightful accounts, this book gets to the heart of Cameron's Coalition government; its ­­formation, policy and politics. Heppell and Seawright have achieved the best of breadth and depth to illuminate and explain the most important features of this fascinating period of Conservative party politics.'

- Jane Green, Lecturer in Politics, University of Manchester, UK

'This is an excellent and wide-ranging collection of essays on the Conservatives in opposition and power from 2005-2011 that brings together the expertise of an impressive team of scholars. It will be a key resource for all those seriously interested in the party's development and prospects under David Cameron.'

- Paul Webb, Professor of Politics at the Department of Politics and Contemporary European Studies, University of Sussex, UK
