Reform, Revolution And Direct Action Amongst British Miners: The Struggle for the Charter in 1919

by Martyn Ives - £24.99  Haymarket Books (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781608468195 | ISBN 10: 1608468194

In this riveting monograph, Ives offers a new perspective on one of the most volatile periods in British labor history.
 
While other historians have skated over the labor unrest of 1919, focusing instead on the general strike of 1926, Martyn Ives uncovers a remarkable incidence of unofficial mass strikes in the coalfields, waged against mine-owners, the government, and trade union leaders. Led by revolutionaries, this mass movement also offered a glimpse of an alternative road to socialism.
