| THE POST-WAR COMPROMISE|
British Trade Unions and Industrial Politics 1945-64
Edited by Alan Campbell, Nina Fishman & John McIlroy
This multifaceted text, written by authors from a range of disciplines, focuses on the politics of trade unionism - not only unions' relations with political parties and the state but also on the politics of workplace conflict and industrial action.
Scene-setting essays provide broad perspectives on trade union organising, and on the parameters of the post-war industrial environment. Case studies consider particular fields: union relations with the Labour Party, international politics, productivity, major strikes and key groups of workers.
For anyone that aspires to recreate these high points in our struggle, these books will be valuable reading. Morning Star
