The following subjects are covered: in an exclusive interview, John Monks reappraises the history of the TUC in the light of post-60s developments; Roger Spalding re-evaluates the writing career of Michael Foot; Alastair MacLeod recalls the reactions of Peter Fryer, George Matthews, Malcolm MacEwan and others to the events of 1956; John Newsinger assesses Roy Foster's writing on the Great Famine; David Morgan examines new findings from the Moscow archives; and Rob Copeland considers the prospects and precedents for a Labour government.
