The principles of British democracy and the institutions through which it works are described in non-technical language. The unique British combination of liberty and law, and its maintenance and expression in the monarchy, Parliament, the working of cabinet government and the executive, the political system behind them, and the bases and operation of law enforcement and the administration of justice, are all covered and summarized in this thought-provoking survey of the machinery of national and public life.
