Jeremy Corbyn's leadership of the Labour Party has given hope to millions of Labour supporters who were deeply disillusioned by Blair's New Labour. Corbyn stands for opposition to war and neo-liberalism but the Labour Party itself is deeply divided, with many in its parliamentary leadership openly opposed to the hopes of its new mass membership. Can the Labour Party become the vehicle for socialism in Britain? This path breaking Marxist history of the British Labour Party was first published in 1988. This new and updated third edition contains additional chapters on New Labour and Labour Under Corbyn.

The period between 1918 and 1945 witnessed dynamic social and economic developments in Britain as the notion of a government controlled economy and welfare state took root. In order to be understood, this shift in the political landscape needs to be seen in context of the growth of mass political movements and the implementation of fuller democratic processes in the aftermath of the Great War. But whilst much has been written on the rise of the Labour Party, the decline of the Liberals and the domination of the Conservatives in the sphere of high politics, much less research has been done on the local or regional experience of Britain's main political parties between the wars. This volume brings together ten essays that together provide an introduction to the role, influence and effectiveness of Labour Party activists across Britain. Taking a systematic and comparative approach that examines a range of representative areas, this volume is more than simply a collection of local studies. Instead it utilises the local to develop and illuminate the wider dynamics at work inside the Labour Party. By emphasising the role of the party membership, Britain's social and political evolution can be reconstructed from grass-roots level, taking into account the priorities and expectations of the people who sustained and cultivated the nation's social-political base. By addressing reoccurring issues of interest to labour historians, such as gender, nationalism, the co-operative movement and trade unionism, through the locus of regionalism and local party activity, this volume will not only provide scholars with a better understanding of the Labour Party, but should stimulate similar much needed research into other political parties and organisations.

Die politische und persönliche Autobiographie des europäischen Spitzenpolitikers Tony Blair fuhr 1997 den größten Wahlsieg der Labour Party in der britischen Geschichte ein und beendete damit eine 18-jährige Regierungszeit der Konservativen. Als Premierminister stand er bald im Ruf eines dynamischen Staatenlenkers, der mit seinem New Labour den Stillstand und Reformstau der Nach-Thatcher-Ära wirkungsvoll beendete. In seinen Memoiren gibt Tony Blair jetzt unverstellt Einblick in sein privates und politisches Leben und Wirken, wobei neben all den Erfolgen auch die Kontroversen und Enttäuschungen (Stichwort: Irak) nicht ausgeblendet werden. Ein Buch, das die Komplexitäten unserer globalisierten Welt und die Herausforderungen an Führungskräfte über das Politische hinaus konkret erfahrbar werden lässt und zudem Orientierung für die Zukunft bietet. Enthält Hintergrundinformationen aus erster Hand über die internationale Politik der letzten anderthalb Jahrzehnte.

This is an essential new edition of this now standard text for students taking courses on the history of political and economic thought and, more generally, courses on the political and intellectual history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Britain.
