Industrial Politics and the 1926 Mining Lock-out Press Reviews

'This volume of essays provides a welcome contribution to our understanding of the history of the miners between the wars. It is scholarly and judicious, but often passionate, disputatious and eloquent...' Tribune This volume offers a detailed study of one of the major disputes in twentieth-century British history. The thirteen contributions provide a comprehensive survey of the lockout at national, regional and local levels. International Review of Social History Vol. 51 Part 3 This is a book that celebrates defiance and resistance but which also concentrates upon strategic questions at the heart of making and remaking the working class. Nothing could be timelier, either in Britain or here in Australia. Robert Bollard, Victoria University, Labour History, Number 91
