Product description
From DFID to Brown's own faith and social philosophy, Webber explores, problematises and critiques Gordon Brown's policies on overseas aid, Third-World debt and addressing HIV/AIDS. Drawing on nearly two decades' worth of primary research, including an exhaustive survey of speeches and policy statements made by Gordon Brown both before and during his time in government, David Webber provides a body of evidence currently absent from the New Labour/UK politics literature. Discover the level of influence that Brown was able to wield in international financial institutions such as the World Bank and IMF; Ed Balls' influence on Brown from the early 1990s; and the revelatory finding that Brown's famous 'surprise' decision to hand over monetary policy to the Bank of England was, in fact, made at least four years before New Labour even came to power.
