Remembering the British Communist Party


Once referred to as ‘interesting but insignificant’, the British Communist Party has been the subject of many academic studies that have explored its chequered history.

Emily Robinson, a post-doctoral researcher based in the Centre for British Politics has just published an article that looks at the party’s dissolution in 1991, something which brought to an end just over 70 years of life struggling on the margins of British politics.

As she explains here, Emily’s article explores the way in which history and memory were used and understood by Communist members as their party – one in which the idea of History played such an important role – broke up.
