A History of Socialist Thought. Volume V: Socialism and Fascism, 1931-1939

By G. D. H. Cole

St. Martin's Press, 1960, 350 pp.

This final volume of his last major work, virtually complete at the time of Cole's death in 1959, deals with the depressing experience of the 1930s--years when Socialism and social democracy were on the defensive or in retreat. Despite the title this volume is perhaps more concerned with movements and people than with ideas.
