Description/Abstract

Labour’s Thinkers seeks to examine the key ideas emphasised by the twelve individuals whom the authors judge to have made the most significant development to the political thought of the Labour Party since the 1930s. Kevin Hickson and Matt Beech argue the Labour Party is a party of values but often not of ideas. The number of
people involved in the serious discussion of ideas in the Labour Party is relatively small and intellectuals are often viewed with suspicion in what is, or was, a party set up to represent the interests of the working classes. The formulation and development of ideas are therefore
crucial to understanding the outcomes of the Labour Party's internal struggles and the basis of the party's appeal.
