The Role of the Member of Parliament Since 1868

From Gentlemen to Players

This 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. The author examines the various roles of Members of Parliament since the middle of last century. Backbench MPs have three major roles-a partisan role, a constituency role, and a scrutiny role. They increasingly expect and are expected to support their parties; to help constituents with individual problems and look after their collective interests; and they are expected to keep a check on the government and its policies. These roles existed 150 years ago, but the balance between them has changed. The partisan role now dominates at Westminster, the constituency role has expanded beyond all recognition, and the scrutiny role is widely seen as the poor relation. Moreover, while constituency work has been virtually hived-off as a non-partisan role, the conflict between the partisan and the scrutiny role creates a dilemma at the heart of parliamentary government.

Ideological Context Labour's triumph in 1997 was due in no small measure to the
fact that the party had undergone a significant ideological shift since its defeat in
1983.

Parliament and Pressure Politics

Pressure-group activity has increased in the British Parliament in recent years. This study examines the activities of pressure groups in relation to individual MPs, legislation, select committees, party and all-party subject groups, political consultants, and the House of Lords. The essays adopt a broad definition of the term to include groups such as trade unions and business and professional organizations, as well as those bodies specifically created to exert political pressure. Providing a comprehensive picture of pressure-group activity in relation to Parliament, this book places it within the wider context of pressure politics in Britain today.

Between Two Worlds of Father Politics

USA or Sweden?

The essential message of the 'two regimes' model is that the social politics of fatherhood have taken on a global significance and that the USA and Sweden represent two ends on an international continuum of ways of understanding fatherhood. The book represents America and Sweden as divergent and internationally influential 'father regimes' or as 'two worlds' of fatherhood. The key selling points of the two regimes model are its topicality, originality, its global appeal, and its particularised appeal to readers in the USA, the Nordic countries, Great Britain, Ireland, the European Union, Japan and China. The book offers students a comparative analytical framework for ways of thinking about fatherhood and new insights into why some welfare states have 'father-friendly' social policies and why others don't. The book makes an original contribution to the growing fields of welfare regime and gender studies by linking the epochal decline of patriarchal fatherhood to welfare state expansion over the course of the 20th century. In this way, the book raises increasingly relevant questions about gender equality and the global legitimacy of the rule of fathers' over boys and girls. The book will be of interest to students and academics in the fields of social policy, gender studies, sociology, family policy and child-development and especially to those interested in the field of welfare regime theory. As well raising questions about the legitimacy of religiously inspired neo-patriarchy the book offers new theories about gender equality as a driver of welfare state development.
