Overview

This book provides a critical overview of the changing Labour Party in postwar Britain. Adopting a thematic approach within a structured, chronological framework, the book revolves around one central question: what has the Party been about and what specific objectives has it striven to realize? The author examines the so-called transformation from "Old Labour" to "New Labour", and not only identifies the key stages in its evolution, bur highlights, too, the major determinants of the change.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an unpretentious, straightforward book intended as a student text and it fits the bill very well. Eric Shaw writes clearly and in this book he distils his detailed knowledge of the Labour Party and the issues and questions that arise in its post-war history into a readable and clearly organised account. It should certainly be on all relevant reading lists." David Denver, EPOP Newsletter
