Summary
  • This book offers a unique full term analysis of the Cameron-Clegg Government. From austerity to gay marriage, the Scottish referendum to combating IS, it brings together expert academic voices to provide rigorous yet readable insights on the key areas of government politics and the debates which will shape the 2015 general election.
  • "The Centre for British Politics at Hull has become one of the leading centres for the study of British politics. This important collection of essays provides a comprehensive and insightful account of the policies and performance of the Coalition Government since 2010. It will be essential reading for all students of British politics." - Professor Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge, UK "Electoral trends in the UK may render coalitions the norm rather than the exception, making Matt Beech's and Simon Lee's The Conservative-Liberal Coalition a particularly timely and informative contribution. Beech and Lee have gathered an impressive lineup of British politics scholars in this first comprehensive review of the politics and policy of the Coalition. Beech's insight of a coalition 'more liberal than conservative' in its ideology is counterintuitively intriguing and illuminates how austerity and the reforms of the British welfare state might prove this Coalition to be more transformational than reformist in the end. The Conservative-Liberal Coalition is the indisputable starting point for serious analysis of the legacy of the coalition and will serve to shape the debate to follow." - Terrence Casey, Professor of Political Science and Head, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, USA "This highly readable series of essays provides astute analysis of the challenges facing the Coalition collectively, the two parties and their respective leaders. A must-read for those who want to understand the record of the Coalition, a judicious mix of politics and public policy is discussed in an informed and balanced way which nonetheless does not pull its punches about the Coalition's successes and failures." - Julie Smith, University of Cambridge and House of Lords, UK

Summary expansion
A unique full term analysis of the Clegg Cameron Government, this new collection from Beech and Lee provides a timely and thought provoking study of the Coalition Government's policies and legislation and its impact on British Politics in light of the next General Election. The Conservative-Liberal Coalition examines the evolution of political thought in both parties, and the impact and ramifications of the Coalition for contemporary conservatism and liberalism. Bringing together a cast of leading academics and political commentators on a range of key issues from the economy and education to immigration and the European Union, this volume explains the nature and development of the Coalition's ideas and policies, and offers a critical evaluation of its strategy for reducing the United Kingdom's budget deficit. Enabling general readers and voters to decide for themselves on the record of the first coalition government since 1945, this volume is an indispensable guide to the key debates which will shape the conduct of the 2015 general election
