It argues for egalitarian economic policy, liberal social policy and a plural political system. Recent contributors have included Gregor Gall on opposing austerity, Jane Green on radicalism in local government, Gerry Hassan on Scottish nationalism’s forward movement, Sunder Katwala on Jon Cruddas, Neal Lawson on blame and Hopi Sen on Gordon Brown.
more about Twentieth Century Communism Twentieth Century Communism provides an international forum for the latest research on the subject and an entry point into key developments and debates not immediately accessible to English-language historians. Its main focus is on the period of the Russian revolution (1917-91) and on the activities of communist parties themselves. Recent themes have included Communism and youth, 1968 and after, Communism and political violence and Communism and the leader cult.
