The Practice of Socialist Internationalism examines the efforts of the British, French, and German socialist parties to cooperate with one another on concrete international issues. Drawing on archival research from twelve countries, it spans the years from the First World War to the early 1960s, paying particular attention to the two post-war periods, during which national and international politics were recast. In addition to highlighting a neglected dimension of twentieth-century European socialism, the volume provides novel perspectives on the history of internationalism and the history of international politics. By practicing internationalism, European socialists sought to forge a new practice of international relations, one that would emerge from their collective efforts to work out 'socialist' approaches to pressing issues of international politics such as post-war reconstruction, European integration, and decolonization.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book thus forms a new standard work on socialist internationalism and will prove important in re-assessing the role of international socialism, and internationalism more generally, in the forging of European international politics. * Kasper Brasken, European History Quarterly *
This study - supported by the author's extraordinary command of the literature and primary materials, and his sharp and persistent focus on key themes of socialism, internationalism, and international politics - concentrates on the British Labour Party and the German and French socialist parties. Revival of international contacts during this war, bitter divisions on the Left in its aftermath, and the defection of many socialists to communism led socialists to renew international commitment and organization in the early 1920s. The account of this renewal is a particularly significant contribution, as is the discussion of socialist internationalism after 1945 and through the 1950s. Remarkable throughout is the relevant documentation, especially from volumes of correspondence archived in 12 countries ... Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
