Still a Third Way for Europe

Anthony Giddens is director of the London School of Economics and author of The Third Way (Blackwell, 1998) and the The Third Way and Its Critics (Blackwell, 1999). He is also widely known as one of British Prime Minister Tony Blair's top intellectual "gurus."

London - The string of election defeats for Gerhard Schroeder's Social Democratic Party in Germany last fall has been interpreted by some as a backlash against the idea of a "third way" or "new middle" for Europe as outlined by Chancellor Schroeder and British Prime Minister Tony Blair in their joint statement during the summer. To my mind, such a view is mistaken.
