Political Parties in Britain addresses concepts pertaining to competitive parties: party institutionalization, organizational models, intra-party competition and the impact of intra- party conflicts on party behavior. It also looks at the concepts relating to competitive party systems such as multi-party electoral competition, the impact of regional integration on a party's behavior and issue orientation. Moshe Maor uses a comparative method in his analysis, illuminating a gap in the study of parties and showing that the tension between processes of change and processes of control results in continuous reinterpretation of parties' definitions of activities, motivations and interaction.
