Short description
The Political Quarterly's Reassessing New Labour: Market, State and Society under Blair and Brown is an authoritative evaluation of the long-term legacy of New Labour. Since the election there have been numerous ideologically-inspired accounts of where it all went wrong; as yet there has been little insightful engagement with the complex history of New Labour. As a result key lessons have yet to be learned, and the central dilemma of whether the strategic assumptions that informed the centre-left's modernising project in the mid-1990s are relevant now, has not been confronted. This book aims to fill that void.
