NEW BRITAIN CONSTITUTION AND STATEMENT OF AIMS AUGUST 1934.  12pp + insert.  New Britain, New Europe founded in 1932 by Bosnian immigrant  Dimitrije Mitrinovic.   The New Britain Movement was a radical movement : it wants a change of the financial system based on the work of Professor Frederick Soddy; workers'  control in industry through National Guilds as proposed by S.G. Hobson, and a House of Industry independent of the House of Commons; Cultural Guilds with an autonomous House of Culture in place of the House of Lords; and radical devolution and federation, national, European, Commonwealth, and world-wide. Groups were started all over the country, and the movement was supported by a weekly paper, New Britain and later by the Eleventh Hour. The New Britain Movement came to an end in 1935-36. The New Europe Group continued  its activities with the publication of the quarterly journal New Atlantis . After the death of Mitrinovic in 1953 the New Atlantis Foundation was created to ensure the continuation of his work and the spread of his ideas.
