One of the seminal texts of the British New Left Leo Panitch Parliamentary Socialism presents a detailed and scholarly record of the Labour Party's thinking and of its role in British politics from 1900 until the 1960s. A postscript reflects on the period of Harold Wilson's Labour government from 1964 to 1970. Reviewing the book on first publication in 1961, Michael Foot described it as 'the most important contribution made for many years to the study of the way the Labour Party works'. Contents includes: Labour in Parliament; Labour in the First World War; Parliamentarism versus Direct Action; From Opposition to Office; The General Strike; The Challenge of Appeasement; The Climax of Labourism; The Sickness of Labourism Ralph Miliband (1924-1994) was one of the key intellectual figures of the British New Left. He was the founder of the Socialist Register and author of Marxism and Politics, The State in Capitalism Society (new edition published 2009) and Socialism for a Sceptical Age. He taught for many years at the London School of Economics before taking up the Chair of Politics at the University of Leeds. He subsequently taught at Brandeis in Boston, York University in Toronto and the Graduate Centre of the City University of New York.
