Socialist, trade unionist and writer, Simon Hannah will be in the shop talking about his new book! He will focus on lessons to be learned from the Socialist League in the 1930s, the Bevanites in the 1950s and the struggles of the 1980s under Kinnock.
A Guardian Politics Book of the Day, described by New Statesman as ‘admirably clear-sighted’, and endorsed by Morning Star, ‘A Party With Socialists In It’ condenses 120yrs of Labour history into a readable analysis. Looking at the struggle of the Labour left to win the party and examining why the movement largely failed until 2015, he asks about strategy and goals and how they might be reached. There will be plenty of time for questions and debate!
