Summary Providing an overview and Marxist assessment of Tony Blair and New Labour's UK education policies, structures, and processes, the contributors in this exciting new collection discuss specific aspects of education policy and practices. This examination is set against the changing political and economic contexts of the British state's responses to global and neo-liberal pressures. Central themes include: New Labour and the education market state; New Labour, education, and ideology; and totality and open Marxism. Green's work marks a timely contribution to Marxist analysis and Left critical assessment and is the first such collection addressing New Labour education policy.
