New Light On 'How Labour Governs': Rediscovered Political Writings By Vere Gordon Childe, Terry Irving Jan 2014

New Light On 'How Labour Governs': Rediscovered Political Writings By Vere Gordon Childe, Terry Irving

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

This article uses four rediscovered political essays by Gordon Childe to revise certain accounts of his political thought in the period when he was writing 'How Labour Governs' (1923). It shows that he was not a syndicalist; that he would not be hostile 'to a real Labor government'; that he had not renounced working-class politics; but that he was concerned about the negative effects of Labor's obsession with capturing the state on working class solidarity.
