Geoff Andrews talk on James Klugmann, 'The Shadow Man'

Event location: Working Class Movement Library

Date: 29th Mar 2017

Event time: 14:00 to 15:00

Geoff Andrews has researched and published widely on the history of political ideas and movements. His latest book The Shadow Man: at the Heart of the Cambridge Spy Circle (I.B. Tauris, 2015), explores the political commitments of those attracted to communism in Britain in the 1930s, and through the life of James Klugmann examines the conflicts of loyalties faced by communist intellectuals of the period.

This work draws on a long background in labour history and previous publications on the history of British communism and the New Left. It employed a range of different historical sources, personal archives and memoirs, and made critical use of MI5 and other security service files.

This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series - all welcome, admission free, light refreshments afterwards.
