(p.256) (p.257) 9: The Analysis of British Political Institutions
The British Study of Politics in the Twentieth Century

Geoffrey Marshall

British Academy

The analysis of British political institutions in the twentieth century has not emerged solely from the writing of textbooks by political scientists. The genesis of general thinking about the government of the United Kingdom is to a lesser degree the product of professional reflection than is the development of theories about comparative government. It evolves more directly from the political process itself and from the controversies about government that government itself generates. This chapter discusses the powers of Parliament, the nature of cabinet government, the accountability of ministers, the dignified institutions, the re-modelling of Dicey’s institution, political institutions and public inquiry, and theory and analysis in political institutions.

Keywords:   political scientists, public inquiry, Parliament powers, United Kingdom, cabinet government, Dicey
