The 7 periods in the formation of the SWP (WL 3/38)

Submitted by martin on 18 April, 2013 - 12:31

This pamphlet covers the pre-history of the SWP in the Socialist Review and IS groups of the 1950s and 1960s, and the period between 1968 and the late 1970s in which the essentials of today's SWP were formed. Written by one of the very few members of the IS National Committee of 1968-71 still active, it dispels myths and identifies some of the deep-set roots of the SWP's current troubles.
