The 2nd edition of "A History of the British Labour Party" takes the story to 2000. There is a new chapter on the development of the Labour party and "New Labour" and the Blair government. The book looks at the reasons why the party was originally formed, its aims and achievements, its failures to achieve office, and its recovery since the problems of the 1980s. Key events and leading personalities are also discussed. This book should be useful to those who want to know where the Labour party came from and where it might be headed.
