This is the go-to textbook on UK Politics and Government for all A-level Politics students studying on the Edexcel specification. Building on Andrew Heywood’s signature accessible style, this edition has been overhauled throughout by Kathy Schindler and Adam Tomes who draw on their extensive teaching and examining experience to provide a comprehensive and innovative guide to the UK Politics for A-level. 
Written in a clear and accessible style, the book covers everything from Democracy and Participation, Political Parties and Elections, to Voting Behaviour and the Media, the Constitution, and Parliament, as well as coverage of key events such as the 2019 general election and the latest Brexit developments. In addition, it features a unique Exam Focus chapter offering advice on responding to essay and source questions, alongside annotated example answers. Alongside the book is a companion website featuring extra case studies, further sample student answers with annotations, tips for planning and organising revision, a list of resources for further study and more.
