Battle of Ideas 7- The SWP and the ‘IS Tradition’

December 6, 2015

BOI7This second issue of Battle Of Ideas to take up the politics of the Socialist Workers Party is numbered 7, following the incorrect numbering of its predecessor, and is cover dated June 1977. However, it appeared in the May 1977 issue of Red Weekly- number 200 which was the final issue published before the launch of Socialist Challenge.

Unusually, BOI 7 takes the form of a critical open letter from leading SWP member Martin Shaw to his own organisation. It begins: “it is almost unprecedented for a member of the Socialist Workers Party (formerly International Socialists) to publicly debate with his own leadership through the columns of Red Weekly”
