This chapter discusses the emergence of the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB), as well as the steps that were taken by the public authorities to suppress it. The discussion starts with an outline of the formation and objects of the party in order to place the reaction of the public authorities in perspective. Finally, the discussion considers the response of the authorities and a number of other state harassments, which led to the sedition trial of 1925.
