Description - East London for Mosley by Thomas P. Linehan
During the 1930s East London and South West Essex were centres of intense fascist activity. This study investigates the British Union of Fascists' membership and support base in these regions, in particular its social class and occupational structure. It focuses on local branches and cadres which contested political power in municipal and parliamentary constituencies, and by emphasising locality and the municipal context, it stresses the pluralism of Mosley fascism. With fascism and anti-minority movements again on the rise in Britain and Europe, this book underlines the importance of local conflicts and tensions in seeking to understand how such movements achieve support.
