 "The Thatcherite Offensive: A Neo-Poulantzasian Analysis"

In his book, Alexander Gallas provides a class-centered political analysis of Thatcherism. He shows that Thatcherism’s success and novelty, indeed its unity as a political project, lay in the fact that the Thatcher governments profoundly shifted class relations in Britain in favor of capital and restructured the institutions underpinning class domination. According to Gallas, it was an integral part of the Thatcherite project to directly intervene in labor relations and smash militant trade unionism.
