Glorious Summer: Class Struggle in Britain, 1972

Front Cover
Bookmarks, 2001 - Great Britain - 304 pages
From 1968 to 1974 Britain was swept by a wave of militant industrial struggle, the depth and political character of which was unprecendented since the 1920s. 1972 represented the peak of that struggle. It was a high point of defiance and of victory against the repressive tactics of the conservative Government. Researched to a high standard and written in clear prose, this important volume will appeal to academic and general audiences, activists in the union movement and students of industrial relations.
