Summary "As the twenty-first century dawned, social democratic parties across Europe and beyond found themselves newly, and rather surprisingly, in the ascendant. Britain's New Labour was only the most spectacular in a whole series of political restorations. For many, this renewal only became possible when 'modernizing' social democratic parties jettisoned their old ideological and institutional baggages, setting off down a 'third way' that rejected the outmoded idea of both left and right. The argument of Hard Choices is that this view is doubly misleading: it misrepresents the past and misunderstands the present."--BOOK JACKET
