Summary, Conclusions and Implications
In this chapter, section 2 summarises the analyses and findings of the study. Sections 3 and 4 examine the bearing of this research on our understanding of the contemporary British ‘new right’, of which the phenomenon of ‘Thatcherism’ is the predominant element. Section 3 is a critique of one of the most influential analytical approaches to ‘Thatcherism’, namely the work of Stuart Hall. Section 4 presents a different, albeit (and like Hall’s perspective partial) view of the strategy of the Conservative government. Finally, section 5 discusses three significant implications of this study for future sociological research.
