This blog is an ongoing attempt to engage with political issues from the perspective of a political theorist and experiment with ways of bridging the unnecessarily wide gap between the understanding of everyday political life and theoretical approaches to analysis.
It is run by Danny Rye, a political scientist and political theorist with a particular interest in theories of power especially as they relate to governance, organisations and political engagement.
He is the 2013 winner of the Political Studies Association Sir Ernest Barker Prize for Best Dissertation in Political Theory.
Currently he is working on a book (to be published by Palgrave Macmillan in September 2014) and related articles on the analysis of power in political parties. Much of the ongoing thinking related to this work informs the blog-posts here.
