Reviews

'In his clearly written and well organised study, Jason Schulman provides valuable information about the embrace and implementation of neoliberal policies by the New Zealand, British and Australian labour parties from the 1980s through to the mid 2000s, with particular emphasis on relationships between labor governments and union leaders.'

Dr Rick Kuhn, Adjunct Reader in Sociology, Australian National University

'This book provides a razor-sharp analysis of how Labour parties, created as the political representatives of trade unions, came to advance the neoliberal policies in recent decades that have so undermined the unions and harmed their members. And it also soberly demonstrates that this was partly due to the lack of any coherent alternative union strategy.'

Leo Panitch, York University, Toronto, Canada
