About this book


This is an important critical assessment of Labour's periods of renewal and modernisation. Beginning with an indepth analysis of the Policy Review of 1987-92, the author then considers how the lessons of this period influenced the Commission on Social Justice instigated by John Smith, and Tony Blair's reform of Clause IV. These events are considered as attempts to resolve traditional problems facing the Labour Party, the abiding legacy and importance of these fundamental problems is assessed.
