Description

"A very fine biography of a key figure who for so long deservedly stood as a beacon on the international left for the way he articulated and redefined socialist politics."
--Leo Panitch Ralph Miliband (1924-94) played a key role within the political and intellectual community of the Left, both in Britain and in North America, where he held several visiting professorships. The Socialist Register, which he founded (with John Saville) and edited for 30 years, brought him into contact with left-wing intellectuals throughout the world.

Based on exclusive access to Miliband's extensive personal papers, and supplemented by interviews, this book provides an interpretative history of the evolution, debates and dilemmas of socialists from the Second World War until the collapse of communism.
