Chapter 1

For comparative studies of the ideological dynamics of social democratic parties see A. Przeworski, Capitalism and Social Democracy (Cambridge, 1985), T. A. Koelble, The Left Unravelled (Durham, 1991) and H. Kitschelt, The Transformation of European Social Democracy (Cambridge, 1994). R. Miliband, Parliamentary Socialism (1972), D. Coates, The Labour Party and the Struggle for Socialism (Cambridge, 1975) and L. Panitch, Social Democracy and Industrial Militancy (Cambridge, 1976) provide accounts of ideological change within the Labour Party from a Marxist perspective, while economic imperatives for ideological movement are also the focus of C. A. R. Crosland, The Future of Socialism (1963) and J. Gray, After Social Democracy: Politics, Capitalism and the Common Life (1996). R. Desai, Intellectuals and Socialism (1994) examines the role of Labour's intellectuals, while A. F. Heath, R. M. Jowell and J. K. Curtice, The Rise of New Labour (Oxford, 2001) carefully examine the electoral factors underpinning Labour's most recent ideological changes. S. Haseler, The Gaitskellites (1969) and M. Wickham-Jones, Economic Strategy and the Labour Party (1996) provide good examples of studies of the intra-party dynamics of Labour's ideological movements.


Chapter 2

Some books referred to in this chapter are now out of print, but most of the titles and all the journals are still available. Of the older works, T. Forester, The Labour Party and the Working Class (1976) and H. Drucker, Doctrine and Ethos in the Labour Party (1979) are still well worth consulting, as is, for its 'new' approach to writing political history (although about the Communist Party), R. Samuel's series in New Left Review, 154, 156, 165, published in 1985–87. J. Lawrence and M. Taylor (eds) Party, State and Society (Aldershot, 1997) provides the best guide to the 'new political history'. Studies which develop some of these themes and approaches for the Left include: S. Fielding, P. Thompson and N. Tiratsoo, England Arise! The Labour Party and Popular Politics in 1940s Britain (Manchester, 1995); L. Black, The Political Culture of the Left in Affluent Britain, 1951–64 (2003); and I. Favretto, The Long Search for a Third Way: The British Labour Party and the Italian Left Since 1945 (2002). R. McKibbin's Classes and Cultures (Oxford, 1998) and A. F. Heath, R. M. Jowell and J. K. Curtice, How Britain Votes (Oxford, 1985) are also important reading.
