9780198275374: Against the Bomb: The British Peace Movement 1958-1965

One of the largest, and arguably one of the most significant, extra-parliamentary movements ever seen in modern Britain was the nuclear disarmament movement of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Comprising anarchists, communists, and Trotskyists, as well as Christians, liberals, and members of the Labour Party, the movement provided its members with a means to articulate their growing fear and anxiety about the seemingly inexorable arms race and the horror of nuclear war. Analyzing a wealth of historical data, this is the first comprehensive study of the disarmament movement to offer the previously unrecorded views of 20 of its leaders.

Richard Taylor is a Director of Extramural Courses and Senior Lecturer, Department of Adult and Continuing Education at University of Leeds.

Review:


"Taylor has succeeded extremely well in writing a critical, dispassionate analysis of the movement's rise and decline up to 1965....His book is a major addition to our knowledge of recent British history."--Albion


"Likely to be accepted as an authoritative guide to the character, dynamics, and internal debates of this important extra-parliamentary movement."--International History Review


"Well written and nonpolemical....Will mostly interest specialists in British left-wing politics and protest movements."--Choice


"[This book] contains interesting and illuminating discussions of the moral foundations and political assumptions of a number of groups that formed the crazy-quilt ideological tangle of the British Left furing the period. It effectively illustrates the maddening propensity of such bodies to dig themselves into politically untenable positions."--American Historical Review

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1995. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The nuclear disarmament movement of the late 50s and early 60s was one of the largest and arguably one of the most significant, extra-parliamentary movements ever seen in modern Britain. A whole new style and conception of politics was born through this first anti-nuclear movement, and the subsequent radicalism of the 60s and 70s has its roots here. The movement was extraordinarily diverse and rich in its constituencies of support and complex in its ideological make-up. Thus anarchists, communists, and Trotskyists rubbed shoulders with Christians, liberals, members of the Labour party, and ordinary apolitical people , most of whom found in the movement a means by which they could articulate their growing fear and anxiety about the seemingly inexorable arms race, and the horror of nuclear war. Dr Taylor analyses the perceptions of these groups in detail and explains how and why they differed. This is the first comprehensive study of the movement to make use of a wide range of contemporary material, and the first to present in detail the previously unrecorded views and analyses of more than twenty of the leading figures of the movement some twenty-five years on. Although he provides a wealth of historical detail, Dr Taylor s approach is primarily political and analytical, and his examination of this first mass movement of its kind will be relevant to all those concerned about nuclear proliferation, as well as to courses in politics, sociology, modern history and peace studies.
