Politics and Policy of Local Taxation in Britain, The - McConnell, Dr Allan
 
Book Information
 

Full Description:


The subject of local taxation has over recent years become a burning issue, starting with the discontent over the Rating system, the debacle of the Poll Tax and its replacement with the Council Tax. However, the uneasy relationship between local and central government taxation has been an historical as well as a contemporary problem. This book fills a gap in the market by considering both old and new issues and pulls together a diverse range of evidence and arguments.
The text will appeal to students and academics of Local Government at all levels from first year undergraduate to Post-Graduate as well as students of British history or British Government and Policy Studies.
