Show Summary Details


This chapter returns to Britain to retread the debates that splintered the Left and thereby compromised a robust, progressive answer to majoritarianism. It takes a revisionist approach to the struggles of the old Left to renew itself, and looks at how this was rendered into a stark ideological choice between collectivism and individualism, with far-reaching limitations for secular coalition in the twenty-first century.

Keywords: majoritarianism; Britain; Left politics; collectivism; individualism
