Designed to replace the widely-used Public Policy in Britain, this successor volume provides a comprehensive and accessible analysis of the New Labour agenda for public policy. Tightly edited to provide systematic coverage, specially-commissioned chapters by experts in their fields examine the key areas of policy, placing the New Labour approach in the context of the significant changes since the early 1980s.
