English Radicalism in the Twentieth Century

Richard Taylor

Manchester University Press

Hall was born and brought up in Jamaica and came to England – to Oxford University – in late adolescence. Although he settled in England and married an English woman (a fellow academic), he retained his Jamaican, ‘colonial’ identity. Nevertheless, he made several crucial contributions to English radicalism. He was a key figure in the New Left, articulating a theorised cultural perspective; a leading policy strategist in CND; arguably, a founder of cultural studies as an academic discipline; a theorist and analyst of race, racism and the legacy of colonialism in English culture; and a leading figure in the revisionist analysis of traditional labourism, along with Eric Hobsbawm and the journal Marxism Today. In all these contexts, Hall was a distinctive voice in twentieth-century English radicalism.
