Higher education provision is an essential component (socially as well as economically) of modern social structures. The British Labour Party and Higher Education focuses on the development of the Labour Party's policy on higher education from 1945 to 2000. It analyses the rapid expansion and series of fundamental transformations in higher education and Labour's part in both shaping and reacting to them. The authors explore the historical evolution and Labour's varying policy initiatives in the period, and question the place higher education has occupied in the various strands of Labour ideology. As always with Labourism', perspectives are contentious and contested, spanning the centralist Fabians', the liberal moralists, and the socialist left. How far, if at all, have Labour's policy stances in this area confronted the elite social reproduction functions of universities or the instrumentalist needs of corporate capitalism? Has this policy evolution given concrete evidence to support (Ralph) Miliband's pessimistic assessment of Labourism' as a political formation structurally unable to confront capitalist social structures, or to see a viable Third Way', as advocated by New Labour?

Review:

'Richard Taylor and Tom Steele's detailed and informative study of higher education in the United Kingdom between 1945 and 2000 documents its development against a background of recurring economic crises and neo-conservative traditionalist and new labour pragmatist agendas. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the origins of current debates about the role of the state in higher education and its ultimate purpose and function.' David Scott, Professor of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment and Faculty Director of Teaching and Learning, Institute of Education, University of London, UK
