Following the locust years of the neoliberal revolution, social democracy was the great victor at the fin-de-siecle elections. Today, parties descended from the Second International hold office throughout the European Union, while the Right appears widely disorientated by the dramatic modernisation of a political tradition dating back to the nineteenth century.<P>The focal point of Gerassimos Moschonass study is the emergent new social democracy of the twenty-first century. As Moschonas demonstrates, change has been a constant of social-democratic history: the core dominant reformist tendency of working-class politics notwithstanding, capitalism has transformed social democracy more than the latter has transformed capitalism. Now, in the great transformation of recent years, a process of de-social-democratisation has been set in train, affecting every aspect of the social-democratic phenomenon, from ideology and programmes to organisation and electorates. Analytically incisive and empirically meticulous, In the Name of Social Democracy will establish itself as the standard reference work on the logic and dynamics of a major mutation in European politics.
