This is the first in-depth academic study of the ideologial and political character, role and problems of Labour Party revisionism and Labour's 'governing elite' in the social democratic 'lean' years of the 1970s. It provides a major contribution to the understanding of the evolution of the post-war Labour Party and the origins of New Labour
