Review of The Blair Supremacy: A study in the politics of Labour’s party management, by Lewis Minkin

Autumn 2016

Lewis Minkin’s research into New Labour’s party management offers indispensable lessons for those concerned with the party’s current managerial problems, showing the limits to the ‘Blair supremacy’ and its long-term effects in alienating some party members. A managerial philosophy and strategy which places less emphasis on obedience to the majority will and more on consultation, minority rights and the patient resolution of differences is the route to reuniting the party now.
