Overview

Sidney Pollard was a pioneering Labor historian who influenced the great luminaries in the field, E.P. Thompson and E.J. Hobsbawm. Almost single-handedly he pioneered the study of economic management in history and the understanding of economic processes by which regions are formed. His last work involved seminal research on the regional effect of the Industrial Revolution. As a Labour historian his contribution to the study of the marginalized in society was original and vital. His history was intimately connected with his personal life--from escape to Britain from Nazi-occupied Vienna on the Jewish kindertransporte to work in Britain and the USA, Israel and apartheid South Africa. Sidney Pollard's life and work is important for historians of Labour and a major contribution to historiography.
