This chapter compares the integration of the British and the German labour movements into their respective societies. It aims to provide support to the argument that British and German societies were not so different in their response to the labour movement. It discusses the ambiguity of state reactions to Labour, including outright repression, the ambiguous attitude of working class parties towards parliamentary democracy, and the attitudes of both working class parties to the middle classes and the bourgeois culture.

Keywords: labour movements; Germany; Great Britain; societies; working class; parliamentary democracy; middle class; bourgeois culture
