The present work focuses on the reconstitution of the Socialist International (51) after the Second World War (1945-1962). It looks at three significant aspects of the history of socialism: the attempt to rebuild and reform a global organization; the issues and ideas that framed the new sphere of socialist politics; and the support given to European governmental initiatives. The approach taken is comparative (Italy and France); and t he attitudes of the socialists towards internationalism is examined in terms of both internal and external policy considerations. The convergence in some important respects of socialist culture with economic and political liberalism is examined, and particular attention is paid to the progressive decline in revolutionary militancy of the Italian Socialist Party (PSI) and to the increasing Europeanism of the French Social ist Party (SFIO). T he research is based on the examination of the records of internal debates and congresses and other documents kept at the Socialist International Archives (International Institute of Social history in Amsterdam). It also makes use of party and private papers held in the Lelio and Lisli Basso Foundation (Rome), and in the Guy Mollet Foundation (Paris). This thesis offers new insights into t he transnational links of the socialist parties and shows how the working class movements preferred to help maintain the integrity of the nation state rather than look to some form of global democratic government. •
