New Left Review I/2, March-April 1960

Stuart Hall

Crosland Territory

A political introduction to the series of articles onWhats Wrong With Capitalism, linking the theoretical arguments to the current political debate in the Labour Party.

there are one or two aspects of the current struggle for the soul of the Labour Party which have, so far, gone unremarked. The first—and most important—is the scope of the ‘Crosland Revolution’. Few of us imagined, when Mr. Crosland began to construct his house of theory in The Future Of Socialism, that he would become the architect of the Party in the sixties. We have continued to think and speak of the reforming, ‘rethinking’, revising wing of the Party as a roughand-ready caucus of practical empiricists.
