frontline volume 2, issue 6. March 2008

Ideas are the strength of the socialist movement. In this issue we look at what happened to the brave new world of New Labour, and look to Europe for inspiration for Scottish socialists. We also take a good look at the sometimes conflicting ideas of feminism and Marxism and investigate popular education for new ways to learn.
