Rational Choice and British Politics

Iain McLean (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

A case study of the two politicians who came closest to constructing a winning majority for (the white) race and the British Empire: Chamberlain and Powell. Analyses Chamberlain's success over Home Rule for Ireland and his failure over protection. Discusses how close Powell came to overthrowing British politics at the peak of his career. Establishes that he won the 1970 general election for the Conservatives and probably won the February 1974 general election for Labour.

Keywords:   Joseph Chamberlain, Home Rule for Ireland, Enoch Powell, protection
