KIRKUS REVIEW

This is limited in appeal. Students of government, Anglophiles who would know what makes the wheels go round, scholars -- and Englishmen, more politics conscious than we are, -- of such is the audience for this study of parliamentary government in England since the war. He brings Bagehot up to date, checking, almost point by point, the changes in governmental procedure, the oneness of underlying principles. He takes the Party System, the House of Lords, the House of Commons, the Cabinet, the Civil Service, the Judiciary, the Monarchy. He accepts the shibboleths with true English loyalty. He criticizes little, merely indicating possibilities. Not easy reading.
