Abstract

This article further develops some themes first set out in my 2006 article on the National Citizens Union (NCU) in Richmond-on-Thames. It explores the extent to which the Richmond branch of the NCU articulated intense fears about what they saw as the dire threat of Socialism in the early 1920s. The NCU sought to 'awaken' Richmond to the rise of Labour, Socialism and Communism (which they claimed were all the same).
