The Making of the Black Working Class in Britain

by Ron Ramdin - £19.99  Verso Books (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781786630650 | ISBN 10: 1786630656

A classic history of the role of Black working-class struggles throughout the twentieth century.
 
In this pioneering history, Ron Ramdin traces the roots of Britain’s disadvantaged black working class. From the development of a small black presence in the sixteenth century, through the colonial labour institutions of slavery, indentureship, and trade unionism, Ramdin expertly guides us through the stages of creation for a UK minority whose origins are often overlooked. He examines the emergence of a black radical ideology underpinning twentieth-century struggles against unemployment, racial attacks and workplace inequality, and delves into the murky realms of employer and trade union racism.
 
First published in 1987, this revised edition includes a new introduction reflecting on events over the past four decades.
