The Left, Activism and Social Movements in the Long 1960s
Norwich — 13 February 2016.
Ernest Tate and Phil Hearse present Revolutionary Activism in the 1950s and 1960s.
Ernest Tate's memoir is an important contribution to the history of the left in Britain and Canada during a unique period. It's a political life of Ernest Tate's life as a socialist during the fifteen year period from 1955 to 1970. In volume one, he tells us about his arrival from Toronto in 1955 as a working-class immigrant from Northern Ireland and about how he quickly became engaged in radical politics.
