The period between the wars was a watershed for the Labour Party as it transformed from a failed alternative to the Conservatives to a majority party of government. After a slow build-up, it went on to win a landslide victory that brought in the Attlee government of 1945. 'Labour Inside the Gate' is the first study dedicated to this period in Labour's development. In this comprehensive history, Worley examines the parliamentary Labour Party and the growing network of constituency parties. He explores Labour's shifting identity at a national and local level and the evolution of a party policy that would drive the historic Attlee government into office.

Product Description:

Between the two world wars, the Labour Party grew from a parliamentary pressure group to a credible opposition and then a party of government. Drawing on many sources, this comprehensive, accessible study examines this crucial but often neglected period of the party's development. It charts the growth of the party's institutions at the grass-roots, council and Westminster levels that, despite the collapse of the 1929 government amid the Great Depression, left Labour poised to win a landslide victory in 1945.

Review:

'An excellent, wide-ranging and thoughtful book' --Andrew Thorpe, Professor of Modern British History, University of Exeter

'A well-researched and thoughtful reappraisal of the Labour Party's history between the wars...likely to be the major work on the subject for many years.' --C.J. Wrigley, Professor of Modern British History at the University of Nottingham

'An interesting and well-researched study of the Labour party from the end of the First World War in September 1918 to the declaration of the Second World War in September 1939.' --Robert Taylor, Tribune
