Local politics in Britain has changed dramatically over recent decades with the traditional model dominated by local councils increasingly transformed into one involving broader networks of actors in policy-making and delivery. This book examines the changing nature of local politics, drawing on the latest research from the ESRC Local Governance Program.

The book concludes with a consideration of the extent to which the emerging system of local governance can meet the social and economic challenges created by globalization
