Set against the tumultuous history of the freeborn Englishman's right to dissent, What's Left traces the emergence of the Labour Party and the conflicts that have subsequently divided it: syndicalism and the Great Unrest; the General Strike and MacDonald's 'apostasy'; the Bevanites and Gaitskell's revisionism; the Gang of Four and the 'civil war' of the early 1980s; New Labour's 'reinvention' of socialism and Old Labour's charge that the party is 'betraying its conscience'. Almost half a century has passed since Richard Crossman wondered whether Labour was not one party but two. The debate continues.
