The Left Unraveled: Social Democracy And The New Left Challenge In Britain And West Germany
By Thomas A. Koeble
Duke University Press, 1991, 162 pp

A political scientist examines the causes of decline in the British and German social democratic parties. Some interesting arguments and statistics, but weak on the context in which these two parties operate. The author believes the parties are far from doomed; they need a new vision and better intra-party order.
