|About the Book|
The original Social Justice Report was commissioned by John Smith, the leader of the Labour Party, in 1992. The subsequent book, published by IPPR the in 1994, offered a devastating analysis of Majors Britain, but also a powerful vision for national renewal. It has become arguably the most influential policy document of modern times. Ten years on, the authors of this book revisit the argument for social justice: restating the case with renewed passion and conviction. They offer fresh policies for the continued fight against poverty and inequality, and respond to new challenges like globalisation, migration and the Human Rights Act. The resulting book, no less challenging and radical than its predecessor, is a rallying cry for a fairer Britain that will be impossible for politicians to ignore.
