Starting with an illuminating historical survey, Mr. Carter devotes the main portion of his hook to the position of the British Prime Minister since 1894, with emphasis on the realities of British politics today. The relations of the Prime Minister with the public, his party, the Cabinet, and Parliament are discussed, and the problem of public relations generally is fully taken into account. Professor Carter fills an important gap, and provides an authoritative and readable commentary on British political life.

Originally published in 1955.
