Government in Britain: A Volume in The Commonwealth and International Library: Social Administration, Training, Economics, and P by G. T. Popham

Government in Britain focuses on the various aspects of the British government and how they work, from the Cabinet to the civil service, the House of Commons, economic affairs, and foreign affairs and defense. Emphasis is placed on certain areas of central government and the provision of social services.
This book is comprised of eight chapters and opens with an overview of the Cabinet, its size, Secretariat, and committees. Attention is paid to collective responsibility and ministerial responsibility, as well as political parties and Prime Ministers. The next chapter is devoted to the civil service, recruitment and training of civil servants, administrative class, and the functions of the state. Subsequent chapters deal with accountability in the House of Commons; the involvement of government in economic and foreign affairs as well as defense; social services provided by the central government; and the study of government and public administration. The last chapter discusses the Fulton Committee report on the British civil service.
This monograph will be of interest to political scientists, politicians, and government officials as well as students.
