Tony Blair was one of few British premiers to dominate his era. Yet what is his lasting importance? The Blair Legacy offers a comprehensiveexamination of the long-term impact of Tony Blair's three New Labour Governments. Bringing together the foremost scholars from both sides of the Atlantic,this volume explores how Labour changed the terms of political debate, established an ideological stamp, reformed public services, revised economic management, transformed governing institutions, andrepositioned Britain in a wider world. How did Blair change British politics, policy, governance andforeign affairs? Beyond merely chronicling the events of the decade, this volume is rich in theoretical insights, historical comparisons, and cross-national analysis. The Blair Legacy also delves deeply into Blair's foreign policy, with emphasis on the Iraq War and Anglo-American relations
