Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the similarities and differences of the British Labour Party and the German Social Democratic Party (SPD) during the period from 1900 to 1931. The results reveal many similarities in the organization and ideology of the Labour Party and the SPD which make it difficult to sustain the existing typology which differentiates between the syndicalist continental, a Marxist, German-dominated continental, and an Anglo-Saxon type. This chapter explains the reasons behind the inconsistency of the results in this study with previous research.
