'This volume is a reappraisal of the 1980s as not a time of political failure but also 'a creative decade for the left. Victories may have been few but there was no lack of energy' (p. 2). It claims that if the right won the economic argument of this period, the left helped set the social and moral agenda of the twenty-first century.' Twentieth Century British History 'An illuminating book and always a serious one, offering the reader a number of full and useful discussions.' Cercles Revue 'This book reassesses both the Labour Party and the wider left in the 1980s, suggesting that this was a more creative and exciting period than has often been assumed. . The wide-ranging chapters map out important themes in the study of Labour and the left in the 1980s, and set new agendas for research.' - English Historical Review -- .
