Offering a comprehensive overview of public perceptions of political parties, this book asks what do we want from politics?and finds evidence that people want to see the ethos of party politics change. Presenting the idea of the 're-imagined party', this book uses new survey and deliberative workshop data to outline public views and desires of parties today.
