The Far Left in British Politics Summary


The Far Left in British Politics by John Callaghan

The status and activities of the Far Left in British politics form one of the most potent issues in current British political life, with organizations such as the Militant Tendency continuing to fight out their differences with the Labour Party. In this book the author builds upon his "British Trotskyism" (1984) to trace the growth and development of Far Left politics since World War II. He examines many different versions of the phenomenon - the Socialist Workers' Party, Militant and the Labour Party in Liverpool and elsewhere, Far Left involvement in the 1984-5 miners' strike and the 1985 riots, the Black Sections dispute and the split in the Communist Party of Great Britain.
