Editorial note: Aldermarch III

The Campaign has been successful in two ways. It has been outstanding in that, year by year, it has brought more people into the anti-Bomb protest, doing today what the slump did between the two World Wars in the matter of baptising a new generation with political realities. Less successfully but of at least equal importance, it has edged, be it ever so cautiously and suspiciously, towards the centre of alternative power in our Bomb-ridden society.

 

Editorial note: Africa: Change of Wind

How much of Macmillan’s now-famous “wind of change” is wind, and how much real change? A full answer is beyond our scope at present, but it seems necessary to make the following points.

 

Editorial note: Socialists, Labourites and Clause 4

There is no reason to disbelieve the Right when they state, in Gaitskell’s words at Nottingham, that they have “never been satisfied with the present frontiers between public and private enterprise”.

Unless a journal has a specific job, it might as well not be produced; only if it has such a specific job can it join the throng of existing journals as an enriching rather than a competitive element.

 

Peter Cadogan: Crowther and the Future of British Education

1

5

jun 60

 

The significance of the Crowther Report on secondary education between the ages of 15 and 18 has been completely missed by the labour movement. It requires only a little thought to see that this is not really surprising. The movement has, or ought to have, a guilty conscience.

 

Hugh MacDiarmid: Second Hymn to Lenin

Every door in any town should be wide open to that great lyric poet Hugh MacDiarmid, a light burning in every window, food and drink on each table, and a bed aired, with sheets. If only one could think of all the statues that will one day be put up to him all over Scotland, work out roughly how much these statues will cost and give him the money now. Posterity can look after itself: that is its function. Honour the brief lives now. – Dylan Thomas

The Foundry Workers, a Trade Union History
H.J. Fyrth & H. Collins
Amalgamated Union of Foundry Workers. pp. 348. 18/-

For those who wish to make a detailed study of the Foundry Workers, no better material could be obtained than in this book.

The Weekend in Dinlock
Clancy Sigal
Secker and Warburg, 197 pp. 16/-

Clancy Sigal has written a tragedy: but not the tragedy he thinks he has written, of Davie, the miner-painter who is torn into two opposing selves, worker and artist, and finally imprisoned by the very people who first awoke him to the prospect of a wider freedom. This tragedy is a non-starter: because he hasn’t drawn it from life but from the folk-imagination of New Left Art Critics and evangelists for a popular culture. The tragedy which Clancy Sigal has written is that of Clancy Sigal.

Casualties of the Welfare State
Audrey Harvey
The Fabian Society. 2/6

This is one of the first Fabian Tracts in the series, Socialism in the Sixties. The author is concerned in the first place to repudiate the myth of the over-indulgent State, drawing her examples from the idiotic anomalies and conditions attached to National Insurance provisions, which “hardly look like State indulgencies and plainly are not insurance in the proper use of the word”.

 

Review: Low Pressure

Pressure Group Politics
Harry Eckstein
Allan & Unwin. 16s.

This is not an exciting book. Excitement is a characteristic political scientists usually try to eradicate, and they frequently achieve a high degree of success. In addition, Professor Eckstein employs goodly lumps of modern American sociological jargon – which makes the discovery of his thoughts somewhat of an intellectual detective story.

Social Science and Social Pathology
Barbara Wootton
George Allan and Unwin. pp. 400. 35/-

The increasing crime rate in Britain today is matched only by the increasing numbers of criminologists devoted to increasingly diverse and diffuse explanations of this phenomenon.

 

Ray Challinor: Review: In Memory of G.D.H. Cole

Essays in Labour History
Edited by Asa Briggs and John Saville
Macmillan. 42s.

This volume, originally conceived in homage to Professor Cole on his 70th birthday, had to be changed, due to his unfortunate death, into a memorial to him – a well-earned tribute. For G.D.H. Cole, more than any other British socialist, has been responsible for transforming the study of the Labour Movement’s history from being a grubby, suspect business, carried out by a few cranks, into an accepted part of historical study. All socialists owe him a debt of gratitude.

Capital Imports into Sterling Countries
A.R. Conan
London: Macmillan & Co., 1960, ix + 110 pp. 18s.

A close reading of this book will make marxists want to straighten out some of their categories, and especially their understanding of imperialism.

Philosophy for Socialists
Maurice Cornforth
London, Lawrence & Wishart 1960. 64 pp. 2/6

Judged as a piece of cheap book production – full marks. Sixty-two pages printed on reasonable paper with clear type and a pleasing format for half-a-dollar is a rarity in political publishing these days, except for subsidised P.R.O. hand-outs. However, the particular words on the pages and their arrangement still remains of importance to some prospective book-buyers; it is here, unfortunately, that the book has weaknesses. Designed apparently as a philosophical cook-book for worker-militants of the Communist Party, it enjoins its readers to look around at the contradictory and perplexing world and then to observe its underlying order – Russia’s steady march to socialism.
