about

This is a pioneering comparative study of the early years of the British Labour Party and the German Social Democratic Party. Stefan Berger examines the history of both parties over thrity years, focusing in particular on their organization, their relations with the state, their ideology,their cultural and recreational activities, and their relationship with each other. Dr Berger argues that the traditional view of deep-seated cultural and ideological differences between British and European Labour movements is in need of substantial revision. Based on a wealth of primary sourcesfrom both Britain and Germany, the book's controversial conclusions will open up a new perspective on old debates.
Stefan Berger is a Lecturer in European Studies at University of Wales College of Cardiff.

Editorial Reviews

`Berger has written an important work that actually practices what so many historians preach but do not carry out: comparative history. Berger reveals a greater consonance between the worldviews of British and German rank-and-file than had been recognized ... This book deserves to be read byBritish, German, and labor historians.'C.R. Jackson, University of California at Berkeley, Choice, January 1996 Vol.33 No.5
