Thatcherism and British Politics

The End of Consensus?

Dennis A. Kavanagh

This book describes how a political consensus was established after the war with the support of dominant groups in the Conservative and Labour parties, and shows how that settlement broke down in the face of economic problems, changes in policies and personnel in the main parties, and the challenge to the intellectual bases of the consensus mounted by groups on the New Right.
