British Labour and the Russian Revolution - The Leeds Convention, with an introduction by Ken Coates
Published by Spokesman Books, 35 pages. Paperback (N4043P1)
In 1917, a Convention was held in Leeds in June, where over a thousand radicals, trade unionists, labour politicians, socialists, anarchists, communists, marxists and others gathered to discuss events in Russia. The convention was subsequently described by the marxist historian and theorist Ralph Milliband as 'perhaps the most remarkable gathering of the period', and it brought together such diverse people as Ramsay Macdonald, Tom Mann, Bob Smillie, Ben Tillett, Robert Williams, Bertrand Russell, Willie Gallacher, Arthur Macmanus, and many others.
This book conrains a report on the convention that appeared in the Daily Herald at the time
