Can Labour and the Liberal Democrats redefine politics to make the 21st Century a progressive century? Can the centre-left find a common cause to tackle the alienation from politics, the globalisation of power, the need to modernise public services and the will to face up to the environmental challenges? Will the centre-left unite to change the voting system and win the case for Britain entering the single currency? Will the centre-left give real priority to family life and the tackling of discrimination against women? These are some of the questions that are tackled in this topical and controversial book, which brings together leading politicians, journalists, academics and thinkers. Contributors include Robin Cook, Menzies Campbell, Lord Ashdown, Harriet Harman, Ruth Kelly, Peter Mandelson, Don MacIntyre, Steve Richards, Anna Coote, Polly Toynbee, Matthew Taylor, Kirsty Milne, Don Foster and Chris Huhne.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The progressive forces in Britain have so far completely failed to articulate the kind of clear interlocking set of ideas which underpinned that Thatcherite revolution of the 1980's. This book, full of new ideas and new thinking, provides the first serious attempt to make good that deficiency.' - Lord Ashdown

'Winning a second term will be an historic achievement for Labour. But what matters to the people is what we do with that second term and beyond. This book provides a valuable starting point in getting that right.' - Patricia Hewitt MP

'This book will make all of us on the centre-left think hard about how we can forge strong progressive politics for Britain. New ideas are at the heart of this and policies to promote choice for families are rightly given prominence in the new politics that The Progressive Century promotes.' - Ruth Kelly MP

'All credit to the editors, Neal Lawson and Neil Sherlock, for this enterprising and useful book...full of thought-provoking essays.' - Stephen Pollard, New Statesman
