This chapter discusses the Liberal Summer School movement, which was the linchpin of liberal and progressive thought during the 1920s. It witnessed the only serious attempt to revive liberalism as an intellectual force, supplied the Liberal party with a radical ideology that assumed salience and centrality in its programmes, and was a source of inspiration for political activists outside the Liberal party. However, it failed to supply liberalism with a much-needed integrating framework to mobilise a nation.

Keywords:   Liberal Summer School, post-war liberalism, progressive thought, Britain
