THE WAY OUT (1942)

Brockway, Fenner, 1888-1988, The way out (London : Independent Labour Party, [1942]) [Heisler] P4119


Fenner Brockway was an indefatigable and endlessly resilient campaigner for the many causes he regarded as self-evidently just. Imprisoned as a conscientious objector during the First World War, he reluctantly came to believe that British involvement in the fight against fascism was necessary. Despite this view he remained a leading figure in the anti-war Independent Labour Party, and retained his Chair of the Central Board for Conscientious Objectors, a post from which he never retired. This publication explains in nuanced and heartfelt terms how he reconciled these beliefs.
