Talk by Paul Kelemen
When in March this year Ed Miliband declared that he ‘has huge respect for what Israel does’, he followed a long line of Labour party leaders. But why has the Labour party been such a staunch supporter of Israel?
And what has been the position of the other political forces within the British Left?
These are the main questions that Paul Kelemen examines in his book The British Left and Zionism, History of a Divorce (Manchester University Press, 2012) and on which he will be speaking.
