Overview

Historians and social scientists delve beneath the myths about the indulgence of the labor movement during the decade and half that were promulgated by Conservatives when they came to power and have been adopted by Labour as part of their move toward neoliberalization. The topics include sociology, class, and male manual work cultures; mapping industrial politics; the Labour Party and Trade Unions; the Communist Party; Trotskyists; the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders' work-in, 1971-72 as an example of how workers on the Clyde gained the capacity for class struggle. Some of the studies are from a September 1997 conference in Warwick. A companion volume is subtitled The Post-War Compromise, 1945-64. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
