MetadataShow full item record
Tho article is devoted to analysis of concepts of socialism put forward by John Strachey and Richaird H. S. Crossman, two leading representatives of the British Social-Democratic thought in the postwar period. It shows a major evolution of Strachoy's views, who initially identified socialism with of planned economy based on social ownership of means of production to shift later on to positions similar to Crossman's standpoint stressing th slogans of freedom, equality and participation of workers in management. These concepts contain certain elements of progressive character, which can be found in advocated postulates expressing a relative improvement of the socio-economic situation of the working class. Their progressive social character is, however, restricted to a big extent. The concepts put forward postulates of some socio-economic reforms assuming stabilization of basic institutions of capitalism.
