Reforming Labour
Edited by Sue Sturgeon with a preface by Bernard Crick
Polemic Publishing
This book analyses the impact of the New Labour project on participation in decision making by members of the Party. It argues that the Party, through its centralised decision making machinery has lost touch with its members and voters. It predicts that these tendencies not only open New Labour to the policy difficulties it has recently experienced, but that it weakens civil society and democracy itself.Reforming Labour cover
Reforming Labour draws upon a range of views - MPs and members of the NEC, prominent political commentators and ordinary members of the Labour Party. It encourages the expression of divergent opinions, but these share the common perception that the Party must re-engage with its members and voters in policy and decision making.
"This book is more than a protest, it marks the beginning of thinking towards new and coherent policies . . ." From the Preface by Professor Bernard Crick.
