The decline and fall of the Communist Party of Great Britain
Francis King, pages 44-67

Abstract

This memoir looks at the final fifteen years of the CPGB from the stand-point of a party activist. It considers the attraction of the party, its internal practices and the significance of its relationship with the USSR. It examines how the inner-party struggle developed and intensified throughout the 1980s, leaving a diminished and disoriented party unable to find a role for itself following the collapse of state socialism in Eastern Europe and the USSR.
