This chapter sets the scene by outlining the nature of Labour Party culture at the start of the 1960s. It establishes the institutional context for Labour's response to cultural change. It surveys the character of the party's organisation and the nature of its membership on the verge of the 1960s, and in particular highlights the activities and assumptions of those most responsible for the party's well-being. It also examines Labour's organisational structure and identifies some of the issues to which it gave rise.
