Synopsis : James Maxton was Britain's most charismatic socialist politician of the interwar period, seen by many as a potential prime minister. MP for Bridgeton in Glasgow from 1922 till his death in 1946, Maxton was intimately involved in the strikes of Red Clydeside, and his career straddled the great events that shaped modern Britain—two wars, the General Strike and Great Depression, the Means Test and Hunger Marches, and the rise of the Labour Party. In this biography, Brown depicts one of the great periods in the history of the Labour Movement.
