J B PRIESTLEY: A Good Companion in our times?

Kevin Davey

Author, broadcaster and cofounder of CND, J B Priestley was a loose cannon on the left for most of the twentieth century. Are his ethical socialism, antipathy to the big state and focus on community still relevant today?

Kevin Davey is a libertarian socialist, formerly editor of New Times and chair of the Socialist Society, author of English Imaginaries (1999) and co-author with Paul Anderson of Moscow Gold: the Soviet Union and the British Left (2014).


  1. Probably not, as we've not managed to record any of our sessions so far. Although we intend to start recording sometime soon. I will post a note here if we manage it - but meanwhile please try tog et along in person, as it is the discussion which makes these kind of events. Martyn
