This is Volume 4 of Lawrence & Wishart's comprehensive history of the British Communist Party in the twentieth century. The History of the Communist Party of Great Britain 1941-51 begins with the renewal of popular front politics which followed Russia's entry into the Second World War; it documents the popular front from 1941 to 1946. Branson examines the Labour governments of 1945 to 1951 and their relationship with the Communist Party. She analyses the breakdown of relations between the Communist Party and the Labour Party; and concludes at a time of disappointment, with the entrenchment of the cold war, and the electoral defeat of the Labour Party.
