Paving the Third Way

The Critique of Parliamentary Socialism

Author(s): COATES, David
ISBN13/Barcode: 9780850365122
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The parliamentary road to socialism has held the attention and loyalty of much of the Left in the UK for more than a century. But has the strategy worked, and could it yet work? Writings on Parliamentary Socialism inspired by Ralph Miliband provide an important answer to these questions, and in the process throw new light on the history of the British Labour Party.
In this book David Coates brings together key original texts, adding critical commentary, annotation and some of his own writings, to contributions by Ralph Miliband, John Saville, Leo Panitch, Colin Leys, and Hilary Wainwright.
Given the centrality of the Third Way to social democratic politics globally, this collection will be of interest to students and practitioners of left-wing politics in all advanced capitalist economies.

'[These] articles deal insightfully with the shifting and frustrating relationships between activists for socialism and the leadership groups inside the Labour party.' Norman Markowitz, Political Affairs.
'The publication ... of a compilation of his [Miliband's] writings, and those of his close associates, drawn from the pages of Socialist Register ... can only serve to focus attention of a wider audience upon his rich intellectual legacy.' John Callow, Socialist History.
