In greater or lesser degree, all have moved away fromtraditional doctrines and policies of the left, recognizing thatleft values have to be pursued by different means today. The term'third way' has become a widely accepted, if controversial, labelunderstood by many modernizing social democrats to refer to theseattempts at ideological and policy innovation. The debate that hasarisen around these developments is a truly world-wide one,stretching from the US and Europe through to Asia, Australasia andLatin America.
Anthony Giddens has been perhaps the foremost contributor to theglobal third way discussion. In this book he has brought togethersome of the key contributions from around the world. Articlesincluded cover, among other topics: the development of the thirdway policies in EU countries; welfare institutions and welfarereforms; economic and social policy; trust, the civic order andgovernment; the strains and stresses of democracy; the regulationof corporate power; ecological modernization; the third way viewedfrom the South; global governance.
This book will be of interest to everyone concerned with the futureof progressive politics. It provides perhaps the most comprehensiveand integrated account to date of core developments in leftistpolitical thinking.

Review:

'This book widens the debate to worldwide issues.' Iain Dale,Bookseller Buyer's Guide

'Anthony Giddens has been one of the most prominent participantsin recent debates about the future of social democracy; his ideashave provided intellectual support for the new Labour project ...Whether one is sympathetic or sceptical [about the third waydebate], this book provides an excellent starting point forunderstanding current developments in social-democratic thinking.'Times Higher Education Supplement

'With an impressive range of international contributors, thisbook provides a real sense of context to what can, on occasion, bea depressingly narrow debate.' Mark Perryman, NewStatesman

'In a word, this book covers a lot ... Giddens has mined therichest corners of the fullest lodes. No collection is betterillustrative of third way arguments ... The Global Third WayDebate is a premier state-of-the-art volume, an indispensablereference for students and citizens.' Millennium

"It may be too early for an obituary for the third way, butGiddens' assessment of neoliberalism-too socially corrosive toprovide a lasting political formula-might one day soon come inhandy." Canadian Journal of Political Science

"This excellent volume raises many important questions. Itshould be read and debated by anyone interested in working for aliveable planet." British Journal of Sociology

"The book is a success....In this way the book serves as auseful introduction to some of the best recent on the future ofprogressive governance - as a sort of intellectual cheese sampler,offering alot of small but tasty portions that, whet the appetitefor more." Frank Cass Publishers

"...the third way has become the only way...For this reasonalone it is important that we shouldinform ourselves about it andhere is no better way to do this than to read this book".Stephen Ryan, University of Ulster.


"With so many high quality chapters, this book will undoubtedlyprove valuable to any student or academic who is interested incurrent debates on social, environmental and economic policy, thewelfare state and the more general relations between state andsociety in late modernity." Environmental Politics
