This chapter discusses British liberalism from 1914 to 1939. It argues that liberalism was not dormant between the wars, nor was it a failure. It contends that some major British socialist thinkers were at times within the left-liberal tradition, and that the Labour party hosted left-liberal beliefs which overlapped with some of the socialist components of Labour ideology. An overview of the chapters included in this volume is presented.

Keywords: liberalism; political ideology; Britain; socialism
