This chapter examines the relations between the British Labour Party and the German Social Democratic Party (SPD). It evaluates the scope and quality of existing relations in order to determine how close or how far apart the two parties were during the period from 1890 to 1930. It concludes that if the two parties were based on a similar form of socialism, then it is pertinent to reopen the debate concerning the existing typologies of the labour movement.
