About the book >.>.> In May 2005 the Labour Party led by Tony Blair won an unprecedented third term in power. After eight years in government its achievements were many. But there was controversy too not least the decision to support the United States in the invasion of Iraq. The Blair government promised to be different both at home and abroad. New Labour would move social democratic politics on in the face of a rapidly changing world. It would also take British politics and policy-making beyond Thatcherism. But how successful has it been? In this second edition of the widely praised New Labour: Politics after Thatcherism Stephen Driver and Luke Martell explore the origins of New Labour and examine in detail the Labour government’s record in power. They argue that this record bears the imprint of the reforms to the British state and society made under successive Conservative administrations. At the same time New Labour has taken British politics and public policy in directions that reflect the party’s progressive liberal and social democratic past. New Labour is post-Thatcherite. The completely revised second edition of New Labour contains: – An accessible and comprehensive account of New Labour politics – Up-to-date policy chapters on economic social and constitutional affairs – A new chapter on European and foreign policies – An original and critical interpretation of New Labour and the future of social democratic politics in Britain Europe and other parts of the world The second edition of New Labour will be an invaluable resource for students of politics sociology and other social sciences those involved in public policy and public affairs and anyone looking for an accessible guide to New Labour and the Blair government.
