Andrew Thorpe's book rapidly established itself as the leading single-volume history of the Labour Party. This second edition takes the story to 2000 with a new chapter on the development of "New Labour" and the Blair government. The reasons for the party's formation, its aims and achievements, its failure to achieve office more often, and its remarkable recovery since its problems in the 1980s, as well as key events and leading personalities, are all discussed.

About the Author:

Andrew Thorpe is Senior Lecturer in History, University of Exeter.

From Library Journal:

With the next British general election set for May 1 and the most recent polls giving the Labour Party a 25 percentage point lead, the publication of this work occurs with exquisite timing. Thorpe (history, Univ. of Exeter) provides an introduction to the party's history. He begins with its inception as a parliamentary coordinating committee for the Trades Union Congress in 1900 and proceeds to its surprising defeat in the 1992 general election. A slight drawback is the dependence on the table of abbreviations for organizations cited. Thorpe's conclusion summarizes main themes such as the party's popular support and its future prospects. Highly recommended for scholars and informed and lay readers.?Paul Burnam, Ohio Wesleyan Univ. Libs., Delaware
