"In The New Social Democracy, Andrew Gamble and Tony Wright have assembled a diverse and informative collection of essays covering current debates about the state of progressive ideas in the United Kingdom. In a useful introduction, the editors note the flexibility of social democratic organisations, the capacity of reformists to reforge their ideas, and the current electoral strength of left-wing parties."
