It seems perhaps appropriate given the sad loss of Peter Hadden of the Socialist Party last week that we might mark that with a Left Archive piece which we had intended to run later in the Summer.
This document, published by Militant in 1980, which if I recall correctly was donated by Jim Monaghan - for which many thanks, provides a good insight into the style and approach of Peter Hadden in his work, research and analysis.
The document itself engages with a very particular historical moment in the development of the left on the island of Ireland during the 1910s and more broadly with the issue of partition and the role of Labour.
