Editorial Reviews

"The final chapters look at Britain's relationships with the EU and the wider international community under Blair.  These separate analyses, while sometimes divergent in their interpretations and evaluations of the Blair experience, are consistent in providing highly readable, well-informed accounts." -- CHOICE "What makese this collection unique is that Beech and Lee (both, Univ. of Hull) disagree over whether this agenda represents a continuation of, or a repudiation of, traditional Labour ideology." --CHOICE "Highly recommended." —CHOICE  "...The volume provides an excellent resource for initial investigation and evaluation of the decade under New Labour.  The book is not simply about policies and politcs, but the contributors situate their analyses within the larger question of New Labour's goals in the face of the party's existing legacy."-- CHOICE "Although the book's paricular virtue is that it is the most recent comprehensive contribution on this subject, its value will diminish only slight since, due to its timing, it also offers a neat summary of Tony Blair's time in office."--CHOICE
