"England Arise!" : the Labour Party and Popular Politics in 1940s Britain
Manchester University Press, 1995 - Great Britain - 244 pages
The 1940s marked a crucial turning point in modern British history. The Second World War disrupted normal patterns of social life and generated an unprecedented public support for radical policies which were to shape government legislation for decades ahead. In 1945 the Labour Party won a landslide election victory and went on to implement an unparalleled reform programme. Labour's triumph raised the possibility in the minds of many party members that the British public, radicalised by fighting Nazism, was ready to help build socialism.
