From Gentlemen to Players


'A fascinating and welcome study. Its strength lies in part in its historical texture, Rush making good use of material on the history of parliament and of biographical and memoir sources' -Political Studies
'Here is, without doubt, an erudite history of the period from 1868 when the Party system as we know it began... the evolution of procedures is well explained' -Contemporary ReviewThis wide-ranging study, by one of the UK's leading scholars of British politics, presents a fascinating picture of the role of the MP during the last 150 years. It looks at the three major roles of backbench MPs - the partisan role, the constituency role, and the scrutiny role. Rush argues that balance between them has changes significantly and the conflict between the MP as a partisan and as a check on the government creates a dilemma at the heart of parliamentary government.
