About this book


The Blair government is much less novel and distinctive than has been assumed by most commentators who have, Steven Fielding argues, taken too much of its rhetoric at face value. Setting recent developments in a broader historical context, this major new text on the British Labour Party provides a balanced account of its present state and how it got there. The Labour Party is forever changing - though generally within long-established parameters. 'New' Labour is but the latest example of this process.
