The second section deals with events at home and the tasks facing the labour and trade union movement. The final section contains key documents and letters relating to the build up to the formation of the RCP. As in Volume one, Ted's writings are supplemented by other documents to provide a full picture of the situation.

Key documents included in this volume include Rise and fall of the Communist InternationalChanged relationship of forces in Europe, Our tasks in the coming revolution  and the minutes of the founding conference of the RCP.
