In Socialism for a Sceptical Age Miliband revealed that, while he believed East European Communism had nothing to do with what Marx meant by communism, the disintegration of the Stalinist states in Eastern Europe had had a deep influence on his thinking about socialism. socialism could only come through the self-emancipation of the working class.

Description: ' Socialism for a Sceptical Age is in some sort Miliband'spolitical testament. New Statesman andSociety 'His last book is a valuable contribution to an ongoing debate. Starting from the far left rather than therevisionist or 'new times' right, cosmopolitan rather thanparochial, concerned with reinventing socialism rather rewritingClause Four, Miliband still comes uncannily close to converging onthe common sense of Labour politics. I strongly recommend everyone interested in politics to read it anddiscuss its ideas.

This volume offers a critical examination of a number of developments which in recent years have undermined the idea of socialism and eroded its electoral appeal. Among these developments are the collapse of communist regimes, the fragmentation of the constituencies upon which earlier socialist advances depended, changes in the organization and dynamics of capitalism, and a dearth of agencies committed to the socialist project. The book argues that a social order dominated by the logic of capital and competition cannot, despite all the positive claims made on its behalf, produce the conditions which make true citizenship and community possible. By contrast, socialism offers an attractive and feasible programme for the realization of these ideals. Miliband argues that socialism cannot be seen as an answer to all the ills which have plagued humankind. Socialism, in his view, has to be understood as part of an age-old struggle for a more just society and he believes that, seen in this light, socialism remains not only desirable but also perfectly possible. Moreover, he believes, socialism will, in time, come to command a majority support which its advancement requires.
