John McIlroy, Fishman Mcilroy, Campbell. Exploring the exciting, turbulent period in labor history from 1964 to 1979, this volume of path-breaking analysis recalls an era of popular mythology and political discourse, examining how workers unions nearly drove Britain into the ground. It cites as a proponent such figures as Transport Workers’ leader Jack Jones and reveals how this turbulence eventually set the stage for Thatcherism and 1980s reform.

The relationship between British trade unions and the Labour Party is explored in L. Minkin, The Contentious Alliance: Trade Unions and the Labour Party (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 1991);Google Scholar.

This path-breaking analysis provides an excellent guide to the trade unionism and militancy of the 1960s and 1970s.

The years 1964-79 constitute a turbulent period in labour history and the high tide of trade unionism in 20th-century Britain. This volume of essays from contributors from varied disciplines subjects these years to historical scrutiny. Centred on a conception of industrial politics which sees what happened at the grassroots as being as vital as what happened in Parliament and Congress House, it takes a fresh look at well-rehearsed themes and re-examines the policies of the Labour and Conservative Parties. It also provides for analysis of neglected topics such as the role of the Communist, Trotskyist and rank-and-file organizations, as well as of issues of class, gender and ethnicity.
