Abstract

J. T. Murphy was one of the most important worker-intellectual figures in the history of labour in early twentieth-century Britain. Using material from the Communist Party of Great Britain's archives and the Russian Centre for the Preservation and Study of Recent History in Moscow, this book not only tells the story of Murphy's political trajectory, but also provides a critical re-examination of the historical and social significance of the early British revolutionary movement in which he played such a prominent role.
