(p.1) Introduction
Equality and the British Left

Ben Jackson

Manchester University Press

This book examines the ways in which the Left in Britain appropriated and developed the nascent economic egalitarianism of the late nineteenth century, including a few episodes in which these theoretical debates exercised some influence over political decision-making or the formulation of party policy. This chapter examines the intellectual history and the British Left, arguments about equality, and the methods and the scope of the book.

Keywords:   British Left, party policy, economic egalitarianism, equality, political decision-making
