9780521560429: Democratic Ideas and the British Labour Movement, 1880-1914

Issues of democratic principle and form were of major importance in the pre-1914 socialist, trade union and labor movements. This is the first detailed study of that debate, which centered around socialists of the British Radical tradition, the Fabians, and the Independent Labour Party leadership, and which reflects on the current argument over democratic structures and electoral reform. Democratic Ideas and the British Labour Movement assesses attitudes to democracy at a formative period in the history of socialist ideas and the British Labour movement.

Review:

"From undergraduate level and beyond, readers new to the history of British labor or 20th century politics generally should still be advised to consult this book in its new edition." Malcom Chase, Labor History

"Democratic Ideas and the British Labour Movement...is an orginal and suggestive work that anyone interested in the history of British labor will want to read." Peter Weiler, Albion

"Democratic Ideas and the British Labour Movement which is based on careful and extensive research, is an original and suggestive work that anyone interested in the history British labor will want to read." Peter Weiler, Albion

"...tour de force. Woodhouse's book is a model regional study in that it shows both the distinctiveness of the local labor movement and its relationship to national organizations and to historical developments of the period. It should inspire others of the same ilk." Pamela M. Graves, Victorian Studies

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is the first detailed survey of democratic ideas on the British Left in the period leading to 1914. Socialists of the late nineteenth century inherited assumptions about the priority of democracy from a long tradition of British Radicalism. However, the advent of the Fabians, who rejected this tradition as primitive, and of an ILP leadership more concerned to enter than reform parliament, meant that the movement was split between strong and weak views of democracy. By the eve of the First World War a consensus was emerging that might have formed the basis for a more realistic and more radical approach to democracy than has actually been pursued by the Labour Party and the Left during the twentieth century. Democratic Ideas and the British Labour Movement assesses an important debate in the history of socialist ideas and in the formation of the British Labour movement.
