Building New Labour : The Politics of Party Organisation, Paperback / softback Book

Building New Labour : The Politics of Party Organisation Paperback / softback


'New' Labour was defined in part by wide-ranging reforms to the party's internal democracy.

These included changes to how candidates and leaders are selected, changes to policy making processes, and a programme of 'quotas' that transformed women's representation in the party.

In the first book to analyse all these reforms in depth Meg Russell asks what motivated them, to what extent they were driven by leaders or members, and what they can teach us both about party organisational change and the nature of power relations in the Labour Party today.
