90 x 210 x 60. (1), 514, (2)p. Maroon card covers with black cloth spine (no lettering). German text on recto only throughout. Colour full-page frontispiece.This is an original doctorate dissertation that lay the foundations for being published as a book the following year by Hamburg, VSA. The doctorate was supervised by Professor Dr. Bernd-Jurgen Wendt. Labour supported the fight against National Socialism, in a cross-party manner, but pushed for welfare-egalitarian reforms during the war as well as binding international peace goals. The Second World War was also a time for think tanks in the Labour Party. "Planning" was the keyword, nationally and internationally. The study of Florian Weis deals with these plans on the political left. "Think tanks" are considered significant today - especially in American politics and at international level - because they believe that they can analyse global trends and set long-term political accents. Topics also reveal striking parallels with political discourses in other countries and times, such as the alternative subsistence economy or industrialisation of the "Third World" or the acceptance of military collective security. Florian Weis is a historian, specialising in recent and recent German and British history. He now works as Managing Director of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, an internationally, progressive non-profit institution for civic education. In co-operation with global organisations, it works on democratic and social participation, empowerment of disadvantaged groups, alternatives for economic and social development, and peaceful conflict resolution. This scarce item came from the personal collection of the late Irene Wagner, formerly Librarian to the Labour Party.
