The British Communist Party 1920-1945


By Matthew Worley, published 31st August 1997

With the collapse of communism in Russia and Eastern Europe, archival material is becoming available not only on these regimes but also on communist parties in the West. Matthew Worley surveys the latest writing on the Communist Party of Great Britain. Since the collapse of Communism, a number of books on the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) have emerged, detailing various aspects of the party’s life; both social and political. While a historical interest has been consistently taken in the CPGB since the 1960s, the ‘pre-Glasnost’ work was, to a large extent, entrenched in the Cold War environment of the time.
