Articles about the political crisis of the 1970s

The taking up of Gramscian politics in the 1970s as a new way forward for socialism was stimulated by the profound economic and political crises of that decade. The writings linked in this page examine these and their background in some detail and look at their implications for current politics. The Years of Lead sets out the background to the period; the Political Economy of Inflation discusses the central economic problem of the time; Incomes Policy and Hegemony reviews one of the main responses of social democracy; Worker’s Control looks at one possible alternative response.
