Summary

First published in 1985. In the 1930s the Labour Party undertook a deliberate search for a viable economic programme to introduce a democratic socialism to Britain. Against the background of the economic turmoil of the period, a group of young economists working for the party thrashed out the theoretical and practical implications of the Keynesian revolution, the planning controversies and the new market socialism. New Jerusalems examines in detail this collective enterprise in economic policy-making. This title will be of great interest to scholars and students of political history.
