Action 1936
A Crucial Year in British Politics

Action was published in 222 editions between February 1936 and June 1940 under the direction of Oswald Mosley. The six complete editions reproduced here are all from 1936 and are taken from the master copy set retained by the printers. They represent an intriguing insight into a fascinating episode in the political and social history of the United Kingdom at a portentous moment.

The six complete editions of Action re-printed here provide a fascinating glimpse into the British version of nationalist politics at a time when such sentiments enjoyed real currency throughout Europe. The events of the infamous Cable Street riots are presented from the perspective of the British Union of Fascists. It is to be hoped that these reproductions will provide a fascinating primary source reference for historians, sociologists, students of politics and general readers and further our understanding of an all too often overlooked chapter of British political history.
