Anthony Crosland, a member of Harold Wilson's cabinet and the author of The Future of Socialism, was an influential British social democrat. His ambitious reappraisal of nationalised ownership and regulated enterprise continues to stimulate discussion in the debate about management versus market. Anthony Crosland: The Mixed Economy examines Crosland's controversial approach to capital and control, situating his attempt to redefine the economic basis of socialism in the context of his own experiences and the intellectual tradition of the philosophical middle ground.
