The City of London and government in modern Britain : debates and politics.

Williamson, P. A. (2004) 'The City of London and government in modern Britain : debates and politics.', in The British government and the City of London in the twentieth century. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, pp. 5-30.


While many argue that the financial and commercial interests of London have exercised a dominant influence over government economic thinking, others claim that the financial sector has been constricted by government. The relationship between the British government and London has become central to debates on modern British economic, political and social life. This collection of essays brings together leading financial and political historians to directly address the issue.
