The Labour Left and the Manual Working Class: Socialist Idealism Versus Working Class Pragmatism Undermines the Future of a Britist Political Party
MetadataShow full item record
The Labour Party has constituted an integral part of the British political system for over seventy years. The disintegration of the Liberal Party after World War I propelled a young and weakly organized Labour Party into a position of prominence. The Labour Party soon became the only viable alternative to the Conservative Party in a political system that much of the Western world admired and revered as the model of a stable, two-party parliamentary democracy. The composition of the British party system, however, now again appears to be undergoing a significant transformation-- a political metamorphosis rooted in the tumultuous economic and social problems that have engulfed Great Britain in the post-World War II era. The Labour Party has altered significantly in the last fifty years. A collectivist cultural environment has had a great impact upon the leadership and the working class constituency of the Labour Party. Not since the beginning of the break-up of the Liberal Party over one hundred years ago has any British political party suffered from a widescale defection of its Right-wing as did the Labour Party in 1981.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
