Summary
"Marxism in Britain has declined, almost to the point of oblivion, since the Second World War. The Communist Party of Great Britain had more than 50,000 members in the early 1940s, but fewer than 5,000 when it disbanded in 1991. Dissenting and Trotskyite organisations experienced a very similar decline, although there has been a late flowering of Marxism in Scotland." "Based on the Communist Parry archives at Manchester, Marxism in Britain examines the decline over the last sixty years. The book deals with the impact of the Cold War upon British Marxism, looking at how international events such as the Soviet invasions of Hungary and Czechoslovakia affected the Communist Party of Great Britain."--BOOK JACKET
