Global Statesman: How Gordon Brown Took New Labour To The World

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Revisiting the years that Gordon Brown spent as architect-in-chief and centrifugal force of the New Labour project, Global Statesman explores how, during his time at the Treasury, Brown was able to wield more power than any of his predecessors in the setting of economic policy both at home and abroad. Drawing upon an array of speeches and policies made by the former Chancellor of the Exchequer and Prime Minister, this book charts a frequently forgotten but crucial dimension of Brown's politics: his deeply rooted commitment to international development.

Offering a critical assessment of the terms upon which the former Chancellor and Prime Minister took his own carefully cultivated model of British political economy to the world, Global Statesman reveals how Gordon Brown exported this as a means of increasing overseas aid, and addressing the issues of debt, HIV and AIDS in the global South.
