From the Publisher"Bodo Hombach had a major role in the reconstruction of leftist politics in Germany that led to the electoral victory of the Social Democractic Party in 1998. The history of German social democracy over the past two decades or so quite closely resembles that of the Labour Party in Britain and it isn't surprising that in The Politics of the New Centre the author makes considerable play with the changes initiated by New Labour in the UK.
The ideas presented in this book give form and substance to the evolutuion of the debate about third way politics in the English-speaking world. This translation of Hombach's book is a welcome event. His work should provoke as much interest, and controversy, as it did on its initial appearance in Germany."
