The theme of the conference was a retrospective analysis of various developments in British politics and political education since that founding year. The two founding fathers of the Association, Derek Heater and Bernard Crick, addressed the conference together with - three of its distinguished former presidents, Fred Ridley, David Butler and Dennis Kavanagh- a current vice-president, Peter Hennessy- and the current President, John Slater. This book has grown out of the papers delivered at that conference, supplemented by those of other academics who have been associated with the Politics Association in various ways. Also included is the text of a speech delivered by Alan Howarth, MP, in his capacity as Education Minister at a House of Commons reception held in honour of the Politics Association on the 4th July 1990.
