What's Left Now?
The History and Future of Social Democracy
Reviews and Awards
"At a time when polarised argument on social media has obscured the fact that politics is usually cast in shades of grey, [Hindmoors] nuanced case ought to be welcome." - John Harris, New Statesman
"An extraordinary timely moment to remind the world of how politics in the real world affects the ability to make positive change and how winning widespread support is essential to attaining power." - Advance praise from The Rt Hon. the Lord Blunkett, former Home Secretary and Professor of Politics in Practice
"The Left prides itself on its intellectual optimism but Andrew Hindmoor shows convincingly that the opposite is the case. This important book isolates the tendency of the political Left to regard its own nation with pessimism." - Advance praise from Phil Collins, The Times
"The future of social democracy depends on better understanding its past. Andy Hindmoor provides a clear-headed rather than optimistic assessment, backed by convincing evidence and careful analysis. His commentary will help a great deal in the process of rediscovering what is the social democratic project and how it could be delivered." - Advance praise from Gerry Stoker, University of Southampton and University of Canberra
