Summary
"Drawing on neo-Gramscian theories of International Political Economy, this book explores the impact of the Marshall Plan on labour and government in Britain. It takes issues with the view that the Marshall Plan distorted the policies of a socialist government and allowed the United States to dictate the features of the postwar politics of productivity. The author shows how the Labour government was able to manipulate US hegemony for its own ends. Based on research in trade union archives, Manipulating Hegemony shows how the centre-right of the Labour Party and the trade union movement were able to marginalize the left in the short term and to entrench a pattern of state-labour politics that was to endure until the end of the 1970s."--Jacket
