(p.302) 8 The International Dimension
Labour at War

John N. Horne

Oxford University Press

Although wartime reformism was engendered above all by the domestic impact of the conflict, international questions were vital to majority labour leaders throughout. This chapter examines the relationship between international issues and the theme of the war as an agent of reform. There is a common assumption that in the international and domestic spheres, the war itself was a dynamic force which made any return to the pre-war world impossible. Moreover, the nature of and change in both spheres is perceived as intimately linked. International peace and an international attempt to regulate the economic problems generated by the war are the preconditions of plans for domestic reform.
