Between the two world wars, the Labour Party grew from a parliamentary pressure group to a credible opposition and then a party of government. Drawing on many sources, this comprehensive, accessible study examines this crucial but often neglected period of the party's development. It charts the growth of the party's institutions at the grass-roots, council and Westminster levels that, despite the collapse of the 1929 government amid the Great Depression, left Labour poised to win a landslide victory in 1945.
