Product Description

The New Labour Reader draws together in one accessible volume a set of authoritative interpretations and accounts of New Labour in government, including key commentaries on the contemporary Labour Party and the Blair government. Using a variety of primary and secondary sources, the book maps out and explains New Labour's political trajectory, the policy agenda it has pursued and the process by which it governs. It uses excerpts from the best and most interesting material, including the writings and speeches of the Labour government's most influential figures. There are chapters on the New Labour debate, economic policy, the public services, constitutional reform, European policy and Labour's Whitehall style, as well as a critical introduction by the editors. This Reader will provide an initial point of access to the varied literature on this subject and prove an essential reference for understanding the wide-ranging implications of the New Labour 'project'. Since British politics is a core option on all undergraduate politics courses, it will be a vital resource for all who study the subject.

Product Reviews

Review

‘There is a rapidly swelling literature on New Labour, so this handy compilation of key contributions is extremely welcome. It affords valuable insights into the nature of the current debate – a must for all students of the contemporary Labour party.

’ – Eric Shaw, University of Stirling ‘New Labour has many roots and has had many attempted rationalizations since 1994. For the first time, the debate about what New Labour means has been brought under the same covers in a comprehensive collection of both explanations and analyses – showing not only its diversity, but also a largely unappreciated consistency in its central strategy.

’ – Peter Riddell, The Times
