A collection of essays from a restive, critical member of Britain’s Labour Party. From the 1920s until his death, G.D.H. Cole was a pre-eminent Labour intellectual who considered himself “neither a Communist nor a Social Democrat in the ordinary sense, but something, not betwixt and between these two, but essentially different from both.” He was a libertarian socialist who loathed coercion, bureaucracy, and the “money-grubbing way of life under capitalism.”
G.D.H. Cole (1889–1959) was one of the twentieth century’s outstanding socialist writers and thinkers.
David Goodway is the editor of For Workers’ Power and author of Anarchist Seeds Beneath the Snow.
