Towards a more equal society?; poverty, inequality and policy since 1997.
Towards a more equal society?; poverty, inquality and policy since 1997.
Ed. by John Hills et al.
Hills and Stewart (social policy, London School of Economics and Political Science) have edited these articles from expert contributors on the policies of New Labour in the UK roughly ten years after this political party came to power. An expansion on a previous volume, A more equal society?, this book examines key areas of New Labour policy and assesses its effects on poverty, inequality and social exclusion by looking at outcomes achieved through the party's third term. Political science students and scholars in the UK can judge whether or not New Labour has achieved its specific goals by exploring such subjects as migration, social attitudes and the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
