Introduction: The transformation of political exchange

Title:
Introduction: The transformation of political exchange
Authors:
Howell, Chris
Abstract:
The essays in the winter 1992-1993 edition of the periodical "International Journal of Political Economy" examine the complexion of the left today through the prism of the union-party relationship. The left has traditionally consisted of these two vehicles of mobilization; their relationship has been central to the strategic capacity and the self-conception of progressive forces. The so-called transmission belt between communist, socialist, or social democratic parties and organized labor consisted of linking action between the political and economic spheres, through a division of labor, towards a shared vision of society. The capacity to achieve the goals of one has depended on the involvement of the other. Constituencies of unions and left parties have historically overlapped. Thus, the focus upon the union-party nexus provides a window onto the fortunes of both organizations and the character of the left.
