What's Left? Labour Britain and the Socialist Tradition

by David Powell

What's Left? Labour Britain and the Socialist Tradition Synopsis

Set against the tumultuous history of the freeborn Englishman's right to dissent, What's Left traces the emergence of the Labour Party and the conflicts that have subsequently divided it: syndicalism and the Great Unrest; the General Strike and MacDonald's 'apostasy'; the Bevanites and Gaitskell's revisionism; the Gang of Four and the 'civil war' of the early 1980s; New Labour's 'reinvention' of socialism and Old Labour's charge that the party is 'betraying its conscience'. Almost half a century has passed since Richard Crossman wondered whether Labour was not one party but two. The debate continues.
