MEDIA REVIEWS

'Ben Williams' insightful text offers a vital contribution towards understanding the extent to which, after five years in government, the 'progressive' and 'liberal' 'new conservatism' that emphasises social justice, articulated by the Conservative Party under David Cameron, has been grounded in a consistent and coherent social policy agenda, or was merely bold rhetoric.'

David S. Moon, Lecturer in Politics, University of Bath, UK

'As part of his modernising project David Cameron pledged to fix Britain's 'broken society' and create a 'Big Society'. In this insightful new study Ben Williams investigates the origins of these ideas, how far they were implemented, and the conflicts around them. It is essential reading for understanding this key episode in the development of modern Conservatism.'

Andrew Gamble, Professor of Politics, University of Cambridge, UK

'Dr Ben Williams has produced an impressive account of the evolution of the Conservative Party's thinking on social policy. He rightly identifies the key influences on, and developments within, Conservative Party thought and how it has shaped the Party's social policy in government since 2010. I highly recommend this book to academic researchers and students alike.'

Kevin Hickson, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Liverpool, UK
