(p.1) Introduction
The Blair Supremacy

Lewis Minkin

Manchester University Press

Blair drove the party through a ferment of new developments reflecting what appeared to be not just a pre-eminence but an unusual and unshakeable supremacy over the party. The major focus here is on three fundamental questions around which a wide range of other significant issues are raised, new findings are disclosed, and previous interpretations assessed. How was it all achieved? Was it really, as presented, Blair’s supremacy? Why did it end in the controversial way that it did? The answers are sought in a probing interrogation of the distinctive character, mechanisms and development of Blair’s party management.

Keywords:   Ferment of new developments, Supremacy, Three fundamental questions, Character mechanisms and management
