The Battle for the Labour Party (Second edition.)

See all formats and editions

An essential resource for all who are interested in understanding the history of the Labour Party.

The continuing power struggle within the Labour Party has raged for decades and has had drastic effects on its popularity and credibility.

Since the 1982 party conference the division between the Left and Right has sharpened.

Tony Benn's attempts to get into the shadow cabinet, the defection of members to the SDP, the Militant inquiry and the Tatchell affair have all added to this general disenchantment.

This updated edition accurately describes how these events have developed.

There are two additional chapters which deal with the activities of New Left groups in London boroughs, and with the fightback of the Right between the two party conferences.
