Synopsis

The Independent Labour Party began the 1930s as a significant force in dispute with the Labour Party. In 1932, as these conflicts led to a split, the party had more MPs in Scotland than the larger organisation and a membership five times that of the British Communist Party. In the first major study of the Independent Labour Party after disaffiliation from the Labour Party in 1932, Gidon Cohen draws on archival material from Moscow and newly released police and secret service papers as well as other major British archives. In doing so he explores the culture and politics of an organization which he argues, contrary to received scholarship, remained an important component of the British left throughout the 1930s.
