This book offers a challenging new interpretation of the development of progressive and socialist ideologies in the United States and Britain. Rejecting the conventional wisdom that American and British radical intellectuals operated largely in ignorance of each other, this work contends that the political theories, arguments, and policy suggestions of the early twentieth century left were in fact forged in trans-Atlantic debate. Concentrating especially on the arguments between Herbert Croly, Walter Lippmann, Harold Laski, and G. D. H. Cole, and drawing on extensive original archival research, Progressives, Pluralists and the Problems of the State seeks to reorientate understanding of the evolution of American progressive and British socialist thought in its period of most dramatic development.
