New to the Library: ‘Blair’s Educational Legacy: Thirteen Years of New Labour’ by Anthony Green

Blair’s Educational Legacy: Thirteen Years of New Labour edited by Anthony Green is published by Palgrave Macmillan in their Marxism and Education series. As such it provides a Marxist critique of Tony Blair and New Labour’s  educational policies. The book opens with a quote from a 1983 speech by Tony Blair declaring his support for socialist values and explaining why he considered himself to be a socialist . The contributors to this book criticise New Labour for not having translated these values into educational policies, structures and processes in this stimulating and controversial book.
