Book Description

11 Jun 2008
Formed in January 1905, the Socialist Party of Canada's anti- reformist, anti-statist revolutionary platform led to ideological disputes with rival socialist groups and even arguments within the Party itself over what it stood for. Peter E Newell's absorbing and thorough account of the life and times of the Socialist Party of Canada charts the Party's pre-history in the 1890s, when the availability of translations of the works of Marx and Engels fuelled the radicalism of such figures as Daniel De Leon. It also covers the early years of the twentieth century when, with the merger of like-minded Provincial socialist parties, the SPC was founded. In the present day the party remains a beacon for socialists worldwide for its refusal to compromise its passions and beliefs.

Review

In writing his highly informative and readable history, Newell has accomplished something that biographers of The Socialist Party of Great Britain (of Which Newell is a member) have failed to achieve in one volume. Newell describes, in detail, the events and controversies that have occurred in the SPC's history and captures the spirit and flair of the colourful personalities that played a conspicuous part in its history...absorbing reading...The "Impossibilists" is indispensable reading for those interested in the history of the labour movement in Canada and the movement for socialism everywhere.
-- Imagine Journal, Socialist Party of Canada, 2009

In writing this highly informative and readable history, Newell has accomplished something that biographers of The Socialist Party of Great Britain (of which Newell is a member) have failed to achieve in one volume... Readers will consider themselves fortunate that the author persevered over a long period to complete this work... absorbing reading. -- Imagine, S.Shannon, 2009

Newell's book is not just a chronicle of events. It also covers such matters as reforms, religion, Russia, war, trade unionism and so also gets across the socialist case as well as bringing together historical research. -- Socialist Standard, September 2008
