Inner workings of the Labour government
on 14 May 2007
Detailed insight into the inner workings of the Labour government between 1998 and 2001. This is an important book for what it tells us about the gestation and presentation of those policies which affect our day-to-day lives and it clearly benefits from being written by someone whose life is all about communication. The detail of what actually goes on in the offices where the policies and initiatives are devised and their presentation is decided upon brings the political process much closer to the layman reader.
There are occasional snipes and bitchy comments where Price seems to be determined to live down to the stereotype of the [...] man, but all in all the approach is very measured, lending both authority and credibility to what is being said.
