Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

For more information, and to see the full list of pre-order items for your subject, see the Future Publication Dates

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6548)
There is lots of information here that is very useful, and that I would certainly be happy to use with my students.... What is good about it is that it goes beyond the basic textbook information to give thoughtful historical and contextual detail and depth. - D Glazebrook, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
The updated knowledge and information included, this should serve the needs of classroom teachers of UK Politics well in the coming months. - D Taborda, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
Excellent updating for the 2015 election and accompanying stats... The introductory section on parties and party system has been updated intelligently and with good effect. - R Cochlin, Author of the previous edition
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6764)
Written in a very accessible manner with good clarity of purpose and clearly aimed at the demands of the course... It is brilliant that this is still being updated for centres to use... I have already used it for in terms of planning an essay on the effect of EU Membership on Parliament. The model answers and assistance are brilliant - such a varied amount and also in great detail. - D Taborda, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
