Very Good Condition in Very Good jacket. This book illuminates the principles and practices which impelled the British Labour Movement? s international attitudes, focusing on its relationships with European social democratic and communist organisations in the interwar period. The calls for peace and disarmament gave way to the fight against fascism after 1933, and after the Spanish Civil War disarmament ceased to be a tenable cause. The author considers the formal contacts made by the Labour Movement? s leadership with the Labour and Socialist International and the International Federation of Trades Unions. This is balanced by an account of the attitudes of and contacts made by the mass membership, Labour? s rank and file.
