OUT TODAY! ‘Coalition and Beyond’: Foreword by Nick Clegg, edited by me, published by Liberal Reform

by Stephen Tall on September 14, 2013

Lib Reform book‘Coalition and Beyond: Liberal Reforms for the Decade Ahead’ is published TODAY, Saturday, 15th September, at the Glasgow conference.

With a foreword by Nick Clegg, and ahem edited by me, it brings together 20 essays by a disparate group of liberals.

Some will have you nodding along in agreement; others will probably have you spluttering in disbelief. That’s as it should be. Nowt worse than group-think, especially in a party wrestling with how to defend its record in government while renewing itself ready for the next election.

Liberal Reform, which has brought the contributors together, has been offering a sneak preview of one essay each day this week to whet your appetite:

Day 1 – A whole new kind of choice in public services, by David Boyle

Day 2 – Liberal Education: Academies Revisited, by Paul Hunt

Day 3 – Banking, by Baroness (Susan) Kramer

Day 4 – Grassroots Economics, by Kirsty Williams AM

Finally, today, here’s my introduction, which attempts to weave together the various contributions. To read it in full click here and hand over all your data to Glenn Greenwald sign up to Liberal Reform’s mailing list.
