Appeared in Choice on 2001-11-01:
In this is mini-reference work 250 British political parties are arrayed in alphabetical order and described in a few paragraphs or a few pages. As the author says: "Only three parties out of the 250 ... have ever formed a government in the United Kingdom." These three are given generous treatment within a relatively constrained format. The total absence of bibliographical aids is a weakness of this book. Its strengths are its plainly factual and accessible writing. This is a book to be consulted, not read straight through. Recommended at all levels. N. W. Polsby University of California, Berkeley
