Praise

“Arguably the founding text of the British New Left.”
—John Harris, Guardian

“A genuinely collaborative project among a range of leftwing intellectuals of the day.”
—Terry Eagleton

“Only a confident, assertive, radical left that is prepared to go on the offensive can succeed. That is the spirit which runs through the 1968 May Day Manifesto. And its lessons and insights may belong to another era—but we have much to learn from them today.”
—Owen Jones

“The Manifesto sought to rescue and renew the idea that the purpose of the politics of the left—Labour and beyond—should be to further the long-term transformation of capitalist society in a democratic and egalitarian direction.”
—Michael Rustin, Guardian

“Reading Manifesto in 2018, it’s remarkable how methodical and far-reaching its analysis still appears, just as the problems it presents—and the answers it proposes—are still nowhere near being resolved today.”
—J.J. Charlesworth, ArtReview

“Explores the crisis of austerity, the burden of empire and the failures to control rampant capitalism, but … clears the path to a brighter and equal future”
Cent Magazine

“A timely reprint … the scope of the document is impressive and the new edition will serve as a useful introduction to the politics of the New Left for contemporary readers.”
—Liam Cooper, vice-chair Dulwich and West Norwood CLPLabour Briefing
