This edited volume brings together leading specialists in
Conservative Party politics to examine the effectiveness with which
the Cameron led coalition has adapted to the demands of government.
While the main focus is on the first year in office, there are
insights into why a Conservative modernisation statecraft strategy
resulted in a hung Parliament and the need to form a coalition. The
coherence of the policy agenda that informs 'liberal conservatism'
is analyzed and the impact of the coalition on party policy across
a range of social and foreign areas is examined; including
economic, European and immigration policies, as well as territorial
politics. The contributors also consider how cohesive and unified
the coalition actually is in parliamentary terms and the
effectiveness of Cameron as leader and Prime Minister. They also
evaluate the impact of the coalition on wider perceptions of party
politics and on 'New' Labour and how it has adapted to opposition.
