The Conservative Party is often interpreted as being pragmatic and concerned with the pursuit of power. This book offers a fresh perspective by focusing on the political, economic and social thought of the Conservative Party since 1945. The book begins with chapters examining the major ideological positions: traditional Toryism, New Right, Centre and One Nation. These chapters offer fresh perspectives and research. The book then considers a range of thematic issues such as the Constitution, Europe, Economic statecraft, social morality and attitudes towards economic and social inequality. The final section brings together a number of commentaries from leading politicians and journalists, each offering their own perspectives on the thought of the Conservative Party and the way to regain power. It is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the political thought of the Conservative Party and seeks to provoke discussion as to how the Party can be revived in the near future.
