The Politics of Coalition is the tale of two parties embarking on the first coalition government at Westminster for over 60 years. What challenges did they face in the first couple of years, and how did they deal with them? With the authorisation of Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and the then Cabinet Secretary, Sir Gus O'Donnell, the Constitution Unit has interviewed over 140 ministers, MPs, Lords, civil servants, party officials and interest groups about the Coalition and the impact coalition government has had upon Westminster and Whitehall. The Politics of Coalition tells how the Coalition has operated in the different arenas of the British political system: at the Centre; within the Departments; in Parliament; in the parties outside Parliament; and in the media. It will be of interest to politicians, policy makers, academics, students and anyone interested in how the UK Coalition works in practice and not just in theory. The research for the book was funded by the Nuffield Foundation. 'An essential resource for anyone with an interest in the Coalition, its workings behind the scenes, and its prospects for the future. Packed with facts, insights and telling detail.' Benedict Brogan, The Telegraph 'The Politics of Coalition provides an invaluable route map to the way the Conservative/Liberal Government works - and identifies important lessons to guide politicians, officials and the media if no party wins an overall majority at the next election.' Rt Hon Peter Riddell, Director, Institute for Government 'This book is pure gold - contemporary history at its best. It will fascinate those inside the Coalition, those who witness its developing emotional geography from Parliament and the general public keen to know how - what is, for the British - a very peculiar practice, is working out.' Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History, Queen Mary, University of London

When the May 2010 general election produced a hung parliament, Andrew Adonis and other senior Labour figures sat down for talks with the Liberal Democrat leadership to try to persuade them to govern Britain together in a Lib-Lab coalition. The talks ultimately resulted in failure for Labour, amid recriminations on both sides. Despite calls for him to give his own account of this historic sequence of events, Adonis has until now kept his counsel. Published to coincide with the third anniversary of the general election that produced the first coalition government since the Second World War, 5 Days in May is a remarkable and important insider account of the dramatic negotiations that led to its formation. It also offers the author's views on what the future holds as the run-up to the next election begins. 5 Days in May presents a unique eyewitness account of a pivotal moment in political history.

When David Cameron returned to Tory headquarters early on the morning of 8 May, he declared his sensational election victory to be ‘the sweetest’ moment of his political career. The Conservatives had won their first Commons majority for twenty-three years and the Prime Minister had achieved the seemingly impossible: increasing his popularity while in government, winning more seats than in 2010 and confounding almost every pundit and opinion poll in the process. Within hours, his defeated rivals Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage had all resigned, stunned and devastated by the brutality of their losses. Political journalist Tim Ross reveals the inside story of the election that shocked Britain. Based on interviews with key figures at the top of the Conservative Party, and with private access to Cabinet ministers, party leaders and their closest aides, this gripping account of the 2015 campaign uncovers the secret tactics the Tories used to such devastating effect.

For eighteen years, Norman Baker was one of the most distinctive, outspoken and campaigning members of the House of Commons, uncovering the biggest parliamentary scandals of recent times. MPs’ expenses, the death of David Kelly, and the ill-fated flight BA 149 were all investigated by the man Nick Clegg referred to as ‘a cross between Gandhi and a battering ram’. Against the Grain is Baker’s fascinating account of Westminster and constituency life, from the absurd to the deadly serious. His observations and investigations confirm how well-deserved his reputation is as one of the most dogged and persistent parliamentary interrogators the modern House of Commons has known. Amongst much else, this compelling tale reveals the truth about Baker’s successful campaign to force the resignation of Peter Mandelson, and lifts the lid on the inner workings of the coalition, laying bare the divisions and the surprising alliances at the heart of the Department for Transport and the Home Office. Insightful, honest and very funny, Against the Grain is a must-read for anyone interested in the machinations, the misunderstandings and the frequent missteps taking place behind the Westminster façade.
