This is a book about the politics of New Labour that focuses on language. Fairclough gets behind the rhetoric to uncover the real meaning. He examines a wide range of political speeches and texts, from Tony Blair's speech following the death of Diana to the 1997 Labour Party Manifesto and Bill Clinton's book Between Hope and History. New Labour, New Language? blows open the whole debate on the nature of the political discourse of New Labour and the 'Third Way'.
Written in a clear, non-technical style and including a glossary, New Labour, New Language? will appeal to anyone interested in language and politics.

Norman Fairclough is Professor of Language in Social Life at Lancaster University and author of many books, including Language and Power (Longman, 1989).
