ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the history of the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) in light of the February 20, 2002 panel discussion scheduled during the Contemporary British History seminar at the Institute of Historical Research. Historians are starting to consider seriously a range of complex factors in their explanations of the CPGB and its relationship to Moscow, to other Communist Parties abroad, and to the British labor movement. The gaps in the present knowledge that deserve close consideration are the CPGB and imperial history, the CPGB and gender history, and the CPGB in a comparative context.
