About this book

Based on a unique series of surveys conducted during the 1990s, this book examines changes in the social backgrounds, attitudes, beliefs and political activities of Labour party members. It addresses questions such as: What do Labour party members think of New Labour and its policies? How important are the members to the party? Are they becoming more or less active over time? Can the party dispense with its membership and still remain viable?

Reviews

'Much of the evidence presented by Seyd and Whiteley is quantitative...but they consciously try and write and present the material in an accessible way. There is refreshingly little political science 'babble'...the book will probably be most eagerly read in new Labour circles, anyone interested in British politics should enjoy it and learn from it.' - David Denver, Professor of Politics, Lancaster University, Times Higher Educational Supplement
