Reviews

'An authoritative and rigorous analysis of the policy options for Britain in the next ten years. It looks across the whole range of policy areas, exploring the dilemmas which will confront governments, and how they might be resolved.' - Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge, UK

'A comprehensive account of the challenges that Britain faces in the decade ahead by a team of experts who also provide policy options to address these challenges.' - Robert Hazell, The Constitution Unit, UCL, UK

'Fascinating, timely and invaluable - a collection of independent perspectives of how key policy issues and options have changed and been addressed since 1996 together with thoughts on how the challenge of the next decade might be tackled.' Sir Michael Bichard, Institute of Government, UK

'An independent and authoritative audit of public policy that is detached from day to day Westminster and media battles. The authors challenge many conventional political assumptions on, for instance, housing and public transport. The party manifestos for the next election should be judged alongside this book.' - Peter Riddell, Chief Political Commentator of The Times
