About the book:

Fifty years after the term meritocracy was coined, this book asks where the idea of meritocracy has led.

  • A team of commentators consider diverse topics such as family and meritocracy, meritocracy and ethnic minorities, and what is meant by talent

  • Contains commentaries by a selection of researchers, activists and politicians, from Asa Briggs to David Willetts, on the origin, meaning and future of meritocracy

  • Demonstrates that Michael Young, who wrote The Rise of the Meritocracy, was right to question the viability of political systems trying to organise themselves around the idea of meritocracy

  • Essential reading for everyone interested in where we are going, and the future of New Labour itself
