Editorial Reviews


"An excellent, wide-ranging and thoughtful book." -- Andrew Thorpe, University of Exeter
"A well-researched and thoughtful reappraisal of the Labour Party's history between the wars...likely to be the major work on the subject for many years." --C.J. Wrigley, University of Nottingham
"An interesting and well-researched study of the Labour party from the end of the First World War in September 1918 to the declaration of the Second World War in September 1939." -- Robert Taylor, Tribune
"This straightforward account of the activities of the Labour governments...frames developments within reflections on broader cultural shifts...As such it is a useful guide to the development of the Party during the interwar years. However, its distinctiveness lies in the biographical notes about notable local figures, the references to numerous local cultural activities and the indexing of entries for many localities. It is this delineation...which will particularly appeal to independent and institution-based scholars.'" -- Dan Weibren, Labour History Review
"A bold attempt to produce a general history of the party between 1918 and 1939 which emphasises the grassroots, a history of the Labour party rather than, for example, Labour's national leaders...comprehensive yet concise." -- Kevin Manton, Reviews in History
