After a series of important decisions, the UK population made yet another. On June 8, the UK voted in a General Election not two years after their last. The event was a result of a tumultuous political year including the resignation of Conservative party member David Cameron and his replacement by Theresa May, as well as the UK vote to exit the EU.
In the aftermath of this flurry of political activity, Palgrave Macmillan presents research from politics and history both current and retrospective, including free journals articles, books, and opinions from our politics and business authors.
