Summary:Anthony Crosland was a politician and a theorist. In his speeches,
his articles, his books - in his classic work The Future of Socialism
most of all - he made himself the ideologue of a new revisionism that
took equality and welfare, not property and planning, to be the high
priorities in the socialism of affluence. Crosland's Future:
Opportunity and Outcome is about the equalisation of life-chances
through reforms in key areas like education and housing. It is also
about the equalisation of the nation's prizes by means of fiscal
policy reinforced by cultural and economic advance. The book
concludes that Crosland, a social democrat and not a Marxist, was a
perceptive pragmatist whose theories raise issues that remain central
to the debate about individual freedom and social policy.
