Summary
The history of the Labour Party is a topical and controversial issue. Why was it created? Who created it? What has socialism got to do with it? What does it represent today? All these questions find uncompromising answers in this living history of an organisation which has borne with it the ideals of generations of people. Uniquely, this book allows those people to speak for themselves, providing a new account of the role of the Labour Party in Britain. Through the voices of those men and women who were part of it, the story of the labour movement unfolds. The General Strike, the Depression and the hunger marches of the thirties, the fight against fascism, the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War and the election victory of '45, the beginnings of the welfare state and the changing fortunes of post-war Britain: a people's history of Britain in the twentieth century emerges in these pages
