This book examines the constitutional progress towards Island self-government, elections and public policy and the changing role of the state in Manx society. It analyses the role of elections both in recruiting members of the House (MHKs) and setting the agenda for public policy. The changing role of the state in Manx society is assessed. It investigates the three broad aspects of public policy: the development and persistence of the welfare state, the changing pattern of government support for the economy and the funding of public policy. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is given.

Keywords:   Island self-government, elections, Manx society, members of the House, public policy, welfare state, government support
