On taking (back) control: lessons from Community Action in 1970s Britain
David Ellis, pages -

Abstract

Community action transformed British politics in the 1960s and 1970s. Its successes suggest how a radically reformed social democracy – more participatory and flexible – might have been crafted out of the troubled Keynesian, corporatist model of the 1970s. We should not be nostalgic for the social democratic settlement of the postwar years; but we can learn from the ways that community activists wanted to transform it.
