Product Overview

Remaking the Labour Party examines the development of revisionist thought in the Labour Party from the 1950s up to Tony Blairs successful attempt to rewrite Clause Four in April 1995. The main focus is upon the most distinctive and controversial aspect of Labour revisionism - its attitude toward public ownership and socialism, private ownership and the mixed economy.Remaking the Labour Party comprises a detailed study of a process of ideological conflict which began with the Labour Partys debate in the 1950s over the link between public ownership and socialism. The deepening confrontation that arose from the revisionist thinking of Crosland and Gaitskell is explored in the Clause Four controversy of 1959-60 and in the uneasy compromise forged in its aftermath. The period of ideological truce under Harold Wilsons leadership is examined, together with the bitter conflict that later resurfaced in the party during the 1970s and early 80s. Finally, the study focuses on the second stage of Labours policy and ideological rethinking which developed after 1983 under the leadership first of Neil Kinnock and then of Tony Blair.Drwing on the authors own interviews with some of the leading protagonists of the debate, as well as upon a wide range of primary and secondary sources, Remaking the Labour Party will be of value to students of modern British politics and political thought, it will also be of interest to observers and members of the Labour Party. *Author: Jones, Tudor *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 208 *Publication Date: 1996/11/05 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.56 x 5.48 x 0.66 inches
