Fourth Edition.

Thorpe's book has established itself as the best single-volume study of the whole of the Labour party's history.

Updated in the light of recent debates, this fourth edition brings the story up to the Brown and Milliband years.

Andrew Thorpe's study has been the leading single-volume text on the Labour Party since its first edition in 1997.

This edition covers the entirety of the party's history, from 1900 to 2014 - examines the reasons for the party's formation, and its aims - analyses the party's successes and failures, including its rise to second party status and remarkable recovery from its problems in the 1980's - discusses the main events and personalities of the Labour Party, such as MacDonald, Attlee, Wilson, Blair and Brown.

With his approachable style and authoritative manner, Thorpe has created essential reading for students of political history, and anyone wishing to familiarise themselves with the history and development of one of Britain's major political parties.
