This autumn party conference issue of the Fabian Review is the Progressive Fightback Issue.

Tim Horton exposes the truth about the Tories and taxation,

Pollster Peter Kellner gives us reasons to be cheerful.

William Higham writes on welfare in a credit crunch.

James Purnell talks about Labour values.

And in Books Catherine Fieschi reviews Thaler and Sunstein’s Nudge and Robert Cooper reviews Mark Leonard’s What Does China Think?

And in the Fabian Fairness special we have agenda-setting work from Jon Trickett, David Lammy, Fiona Mactaggart, and Stella Creasy.

If you’d like to receive the Fabian Review through the post every quarter, you can join the Fabian Society. You’ll get a copy of the Fabian Review and a copy of our latest pamphlet every three months. Find out more about joining the Fabian Society here.
