Description - The Decline of the Public by David Marquand

David Marquand traces the growth of the public domain from Gladstone to Attlee, analyses the forces that began to undermine it post-war and exposes the campaign that the Thatcher and Blair governments have waged against it. He ends with a call for a counter-attack based on a re-statement of the civic ideal in a twenty-first century idiom.

Buy The Decline of the Public by David Marquand from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
