The Future of Socialism

By C. A. R. Crosland

Macmillan, 1957, 540 pp.

An effort, by an economist and former Labor M.P., to reinterpret Socialism in the light of changes since 1939 and to suggest lines of policy for the future. Feeling that "capitalism has been reformed almost out of recognition," the author concludes that economic growth and efficiency are no longer of primary concern and that reforms should be along more "social" and idealistic lines.
