Joel Krieger provides an in-depth study of New Labour's model of government and the political challenges it faces. He analyzes the interaction of global processes and domestic politics from the organization of production to the formation of class, ethnic, and gender-based identities. Kriegerdevelops an original framework for analyzing New Labour in comparison to three models of social democracy and places the British case firmly in the context of alternative national models and European debates.
Joel Krieger is at Wellesley College.

Editorial Reviews

"An important book that adds clarity to the often amorphous notion of globalization. The book's conceptual and theorhetical rigor serves as a useful antidote to the journalistic obsession with 'the Blair effect' and the ubiquitous spin doctors. An important and enriching contribution to theanalysis of British politics. It deserves to be widely read."--Andrew P. Geddes, American Political Science Review, September 2000
