    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

  • The Third Wayby Anthony Giddens

    Wiley 2013; US$ 22.95

    The idea of finding a 'third way' in politics has been widely discussed over recent months - not only in the UK, but in the US, Continental Europe and Latin America. But what is the third way?
