Labour in Crisis: Clement Attlee and the Labour Party in Opposition, 1931-40 by John Swift
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a study of the development of Clement Attlee and the Labour Party from the collapse of the second Labour Government in August 1931, to their entry into Churchill's coalition in May 1940. It is an examination of how Labour, from being driven from office as unfit to govern, recovered to be seen as essential to the effective prosecution of the war, and how Attlee emerged from relative obscurity to become a central figure in the War Cabinet.
