Lin, Chun (1993) The British new left. Edinburgh University Press, Edinburgh . ISBN 9780748604227
This is a systematic and scholarly treatment of the history of the British New Left and its key thinkers. It examines the work of Raymond Williams, Edward Thompson, Stuart Hall and Perry Anderson who together forged a particularly British form of new leftism in the 1950s, '60s and '70s. Against the background of post-war capitalist advancement, the book traces the origins and formation of the new socialist movement, examining its political and intellectual concerns and assessing its achievements and failures. Using unpublished material and combining biography and readings from key texts, "The British New Left" sheds light on the origins of modern British socialism.
