Description

In this issue of "Socialist History", Tom Nairn examines the implications for Scotland and the rest of the UK of a devolved Scottish parliament in the light of proposals by the Labour government for a referendum. David Parker analyzes the functioning and legacy of the Communist Party Historians' Group, and Jo Stanley discusses her own reactions to organizing the archive of the Party. The issue concludes with a report on the memorial for Raphael Samuel. Over 20 book reviews by, among others, John Newsinger, Geoff Andrews, Nina Temple and Nina Fishman, are mostly related to the key themes in this issue of nationalism and imperialism, as well as the history of Ireland.show more
