This book analyses the way in which the British left responded to this new challenge. How did socialists and communists in Britain explain what fascism was? What did they do to oppose it, and how successful were they? In examining the theories and actions of the Labour Party, the TUC, the Communist Party and other, smaller left-wing groups, the book explains their different approaches, while at the same time highlighting the common thread that ran through all their interpretations of fascism. The author argues that the British left has largely been overlooked in the few specific studies of anti-fascism that exist, with the focus being disproportionately applied to its European counterparts. He also takes issue with recent developments in the study of fascism, and argues that the views of the left, often derided by modern historians, are still relevant today. Zusammenfassung A new work that looks at the struggle against fascism in Britain between the wars! argues that the British left have been overlooked in studies of anti-fascism! and maintains that the Labour Party! the Communist Party and other left-wing currents developed sophisticated analyses of fascism on a par with those of European socialists and communists. -- .
