About the Author

Stephanie L. Mudge is Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Davis.


Why is the Left failing everywhere? Because back in the 1990s, left-wing parties gave up on growing their core constituencies, turning instead to a cadre of technicians. Mudge argues that success of center-left parties rested upon their ability to 'win, represent, and shape how people think.' This latter goal used to be the province of 'economist theoreticians' who embraced a 'Keynesian ethic.' But as economics changed, so did the visions of the economists who guided left parties. Why the Left is dying owes much to their interventions.--Mark Blyth, Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs, Brown University
Leftism Reinvented provides a wealth of information, and very few scholars exhibit Mudge's mastery of the economic policies across so many parties over such a stretch of time...It is necessary reading for anyone seeking to understand our current political predicament.--Edwin Amenta"American Journal of Sociology" (05/01/2019)
