International Socialist Group – Socialist Outlook

December 31, 2016

SO1.pngA few months ago we posted a short piece about the International Group founded in 1985 and, more recently, our sister site Splits&Fusions posted about the Socialist Group which was formed by Alan Thornett, John Lister and others who had been in the Workers Socialist League.

After a period of working together, and an extended fusion process, the two groups came together to form the International Socialist Group and established the magazine Socialist Outlook.

Our collection of Socialist Outlook magazine, which ran for at least 30 issues, can be found here:

Thanks are due to Steve G, Keith W and Keith S for providing me with a full collection of Socialist Outlook magazines!

    Also issued was what was titled as Special Supplement on Eastern Europe and described as a Pre-publication supplement from Socialist Outlook Number 21. It contains the articles published in Number 21 on The Implosion of East European Stalinism, The question of German reunification, Eastern Europe: Where is the Left? And Romania: mass movement in search of leadership and Unanswered questions for Polish socialists.

    Rob if for the sake of completeness you want to scan this Supplement I will give it to you next tIme.

    To describe the Socialist Group as consisting of pre fusion WSL people is misleading. There were others too. Quite a number of the members came from the ICL side of the fusion.

      In fact on reflection I would go further. The leadership of the proto SG was as much ex ICL as ex WSL.

        This is something it would be good to explore. Another comrade made similar comments to me.
