The Future of Socialism
Anthony Crosland, Gordon Brown
The 50th anniversary edition of the book that changed English Politics. With an Introduction by Gordon Brown.
It is impossible to think of the intellectual landscape of Britain today without recognising the power of Crosland’s The Future of Socialism in all aspects of the political debate. Still relevant 50 years after it was first published, Crosland’s masterwork was a radical reworking of the role of the post-war Labour Party.
This book sets out the philosophy for the New Labour project and also contains the key for reviving the fortunes of the Party of the future.
Also included is a piece by Dick Leonard, Crosland’s Personal Private Secretary and who knew the radical philosopher well, and an afterword from Susan Crosland.
"'The key social democratic text remains Tony Crosland's The Future of Socialism...' Will Hutton 'The most important post-War attempt to define a non Marxist socialism for the Labour Party.' Financial Times 'Labour's greatest Revisionist intellectual' The Independent 'Discussion of the theory of socialism still revolves around what Crosland wrote 40 years ago.' Roy Hattersley"
