Editorial Reviews

"Flewers and McIlroy have done an immense service in gathering together the important documents of this vital moment in the history of the Communist Party and have published the three issues of The Reasoner, of which few copies survive. This rich seam of material is now readily available to all." —Keith Laybour, Labor History Review
