Synopsis
Explains the decisions behind the changes in public order legislation by using three models of decision-making - the rational decision-making model, the organisation model and the political interests model. Highlights the influence of political interests on the final outcome of the Public Order Bill by looking in detail at the pressure of two groups - the Association of Chief Police Officers and the National Council for Civil Liberties.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
