MoreThe Labour Party of today can only be understood in terms of its origins and history. Mr Pelling examines the background to the foundation of the party in 1900,and analyses the contribution of the early Socialists and trade unionists as well as the general attitude of the existing political parties. There are vivid character-sketches of personalities such as William Morris, Keir Hardie and the Fabians, and descriptions of the role of organizations as varied as the New Unions, the Clarion Fellowship, and the Labour Church.
