The Political Economy of New Labour

£11.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Political Economy of New Labour provides one of the first systematic assessments and accessible evaluations of the modernisation of the British Labour Party in the light of its landslide electoral victory in 1997. It also represents a rare attempt to locate Labour's modernisation in terms of the distinctive political economy of contemporary British capitalism and the impact of globalisation, the evolution and transformation of the British State in the post-war period, the legacy of Thatcherism, and the nature of electoral strategy and competition in contemporary Britain.
In doing so, it provides a genuinely interdisciplinary account and analysis of Labour's modernisation and the strategic terrain within which this has been played out, as well as an assessment of the strategic alternatives available to a New Labour administration in an era of globalisation and an evaluation of the prospects for a decisive break with the Thatcher/Major legacy.
This book is an important contribution to the literature on globalisation, the alternatives to neo-liberalism and the prospects for social democracy. Written in an accessible, engaging yet uncompromising style, it will provide essential reading for both students and academics.
