'From Militant to the Socialist Party' by Peter Taaffe
Published by Socialist Books
The present general election campaign will see a choice for those opposed to Tory austerity. The battle within Labour rages over Tony Blair's legacy and those seeking to continue it, and supporters of Corbyn who want to see working-class political representation.
In this battle, the influence of the Socialist Party, formerly Militant, has been a touchstone, showing how it is possible for working-class people to organise and win.
From Militant to the Socialist Party covers developments from the New Labour takeover of the Labour Party to the first rumblings of the world economic crisis of 2007-08, and is the sequel to The Rise of Militant.
In the aftermath of the collapse of the Stalinist regimes, capitalism's representatives proclaimed 'the end of history'. But the struggles of workers and young people continued. From the Liverpool Dockers' strike to the mass movements against the invasion of Iraq, From Militant to the Socialist Party charts the fightback, and highlights the lessons of these movements for today.
As Blair and New Labour implemented neoliberal policies, the fight for working-class political representation is a fundamental battle charted out in the book.
