Ilaria Favretto presents a detailed study which traces the origins of the Third Way by comparing the European Left's contemporary neo-revisionism with past revisionist attempts. Focusing its analysis on the British Labour Party and the Italian Left, "The Long Search for a Third Way" provides interpretations and insights into the histories of both parties. The book should be accessible not only to students and scholars, but also to the general reader interested in contemporary European politics.
ILARIA FAVRETTO was educated in Milan and London. She has written articles for numerous journals on the history of the European Left in the twentieth century. She is currently Senior Research Fellow at the European Research Centre of Kingston University as well as Reviews Editor of the Journal of Southern Europe and the Balkans.
