Between the last Chartist conference of 1858 and the foundation of the Democratic Federation in 1881, the embers of socialism burned low and almost flickered out in Great Britain. This is not to say that socialist interests were wholly dormant, for there were many small political clubs in Britain whose members were largely former Chartists , Owenists, and members of the British component of the International Working Men's Association. Because of the low volume of strength of these clubs, no well-defined socialist movement manifested itself during these years.
