No one saw it coming. No pundit, no pollster and no political leader predicted David Cameron’s Conservative Party would win a majority of seats in Parliament and his three main opponents would resign as party leaders. The consequences of the coalition also became clear as the Liberal Democrats fell dramatically from grace, and lost their spot as Britain’s third party. And despite Scotland voting ‘NO’ to independence in 2014, the election result also threatens the Union, with the Scottish National Party winning all but three of the country’s seats. In this timely edition, Richard S. Grayson analyses Britain’s changing political landscape, and explores the role of the media, the European Union and the UK’s ‘special relationship’ with the US. Thorough and incisive, British Politics: A Beginner’s Guide is the perfect introduction to the structure, parties and personalities of British Government today.

This book brings together leading scholars to analyze political marketing in the context of the UK 2015 General Election. Election campaigns represent a time of intense marketing, including: the communication of party, party leader and candidate brands; the design and dissemination of key messages and policy proposals; identification of target voters; setting out strategies for the campaign; and translating strategies into specific communication tactics. Each chapter of this book has been specifically commissioned to focus on one of these aspects of the campaign (targeted campaigning, branding, core messages, advertising, media management, online campaigning and the campaign in the marginal seats). The collection offers insights into the most interesting and innovative aspects of the 2015 election campaign, determining how levels parties with differing resource approach elections and with what impacts, as well as what we can learn more broadly about marketing at general elections. The chapters are developed to make the topic accessible to non-scholars and to have real-world relevance.

Die politische und persönliche Autobiographie des europäischen Spitzenpolitikers Tony Blair fuhr 1997 den größten Wahlsieg der Labour Party in der britischen Geschichte ein und beendete damit eine 18-jährige Regierungszeit der Konservativen. Als Premierminister stand er bald im Ruf eines dynamischen Staatenlenkers, der mit seinem New Labour den Stillstand und Reformstau der Nach-Thatcher-Ära wirkungsvoll beendete. In seinen Memoiren gibt Tony Blair jetzt unverstellt Einblick in sein privates und politisches Leben und Wirken, wobei neben all den Erfolgen auch die Kontroversen und Enttäuschungen (Stichwort: Irak) nicht ausgeblendet werden. Ein Buch, das die Komplexitäten unserer globalisierten Welt und die Herausforderungen an Führungskräfte über das Politische hinaus konkret erfahrbar werden lässt und zudem Orientierung für die Zukunft bietet. Enthält Hintergrundinformationen aus erster Hand über die internationale Politik der letzten anderthalb Jahrzehnte.
