(p.1) Introduction
Globalisation and Ideology in Britain

Craig Berry

Manchester University Press

The concept of ‘globalisation’ has become ubiquitous in British politics, as in many countries of the world. The main political parties all subscribe to the view that globalisation is happening and that it matters. This book surveys the ideological landscape through the empirical lens of foreign economic policy. This chapter introduces the key aims of the book and the five case studies of actors engaged in making and contesting foreign economic policy in Britain. The cases are: New Labour; International Financial Services, London (IFSL); The Liberal Democrats Oxfam; and The Socialist Workers' Party (SWP).

Keywords:   globalisation, British politics, foreign economic policy, ISFL, SWP, New Labour
