Editorial Reviews

Harvey J. Kaye
..."[T]he Third Way" basically refers to a politics and governing vision that is supposed to differ from both the market fundamentalism of the right and the statism of the socialist tradition....The faddishness of the Third Way represents not simply the acceptance of the triumph of capital, but also the Clintonization of European politics and ideas. This is not an export we should be proud of.
