This new edition of The Almanac of British Politics has been thoroughly revised and updated since the second successive Labour election victory in 2001. It is firmly established as the definitive guide to the political map of the United Kingdom, covering in detail each of the constituencies sending representatives to the House of Commons. It also contains insightful biographical sketches of every single Member of Parliament.

The Almanac gives a comprehensive seat-by-seat analysis of all parliamentary constituencies, describing their social, economic and political characteristics. This edition also includes new statistics for each seat including:

  • electorate and turnout
  • average property values per constituency
  • unemployment
  • premature mortality index and rank order
  • financial deprivation.

This is the essential reference work on British politics for students, academics, journalists and psephologists.
