The rise of the New Right and the collapse of state communism in 1989 has fundamentally changed political thinking in the late twentieth century. Rodney Barker has revised and extended his classic text - Political Ideas in Modern Britain- in the light of these changes. His accessible account of political thinking in Britain since the 1880s now includes detailed analysis of:
* the demise of traditional conservatism and socialism
* the rise and decline of the New Right
* the growth of feminism, liberalism and pluralism
Political Ideas in Modern Britaincharts the changing intellectual landscape of political thinking, illustrating how contemporary political thought is both rooted in tradition and a radical transformation of it. Whether the future is liberal, communitarian, pluralist, or simply uncertain, this is an essential guide for students of British politics.
Rodney Barker is Senior Lecturer in Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
