Based on unprecedented access to both rebels and whips, The Rebels shows how a group of MPs routinely dismissed as spineless and feeble have become one of Tony Blair's biggest headaches. Written by Britain's leading expert on the subject, it details the clashes between the Prime Minister and his backbench MPs since 1997. The Rebels tells the inside story of the revolts on tuition fees, foundation hospitals and the Iraq war, and investigates when and how the whips intervene to keep MPs on message.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With unique insights and wit Philip Cowley crushes the myth of backbenchers as poodles. The secrets of the ferment of parliamentary dissent and the arm-twisting chicanery of the whips are revealed. This is a great read and a powerful warning that the rebels in the new parliament will not only bark but bite" Paul Flynn MP "Philip Cowley is now the leading student of the voting behaviour of MPs - to whom journalists automatically turn whenever there is a Commons revolt" Peter Riddell
