Industry Reviews

`Politics in Transition presents a reasoned and critical account drawing upon a wide range of theories within a manner unconstrained by disciplinary boundaries.... (It)is ambitious in its scope and through its deliberate use of juxtaposing alternative theories, frequently provocative in its conclusions.' - Transactions

`As a student text, the book has much to offer. The exposition in each chapter is uniformly clear and thorough. The strategy of comparing and contrasting theories of change in the light of events throws their relative merits and drawbacks into sharp relief, and these points are drawn out well in the discussions. The open-endedness of the volume is a particular strength: a few definitive conclusions are drawn, and political change is presented throughout as a matter for debate and controversy.... the book is good value for money. It succeeds in providing a glimpse of the controversy and richness of current political debate in Britain, and will help challenge students to develop their own arguments and analyses.' - Urban Studies
