About the Authors
  • First published in 1950, this is the third edition of a book that was originally published in 1932. It provides concise yet detailed descriptions of political structures on a local, central and international scale, also discussing the relationship between these structures and the citizen. The text was written as an accessible guide to its topic, aimed at the non-specialist with an interest in the workings of political institutions and their role within them. Sections on local, national, Commonwealth and international bodies each finish with a chapter entitled 'How we can help', reflecting a practical, community-based focus. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the relationship between the individual and the body politic.
