The significant and sometimes controversial figure, Will Crooks, who became the Chairman of the Popular Board of Guardians and a leading pioneer of the trade union and labour movement, has been overlooked by modern historians. Here Paul Tyler presents a groundbreaking political biography of a significant Labour figure at both a local and national level and an important reinterpretation of the early trade union and labour movement from the 1880s to the 1920s.
