The politics of the new centre

Bodo Hombach

1 June 2000

Bodo Hombach had a major role in the reconstruction of leftist politics in Germany that led to the electoral victory of the Social Democratic Party in 1998. The history of German social democracy over the past two decades or so quite closely resembles that of the Labour Party in Britain and it isn't surprising that in The Politics of the New Centre the author makes considerable play with the changes initiated by New Labour in the UK.
