Labour Inside the Gate by Matthew Worley

Book Description

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.
