Format: Paperback
FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, I HAVE SUPPLIED A PHOTOGRAPH OF THE BOOK, AND THIS IS WHAT THE PUBLISHERS "REVIEW" STATES [from the back cover]. :

************************************************************************

British workers today earn more money, live better and have better working conditions than ever before; yet in working-class communities all over the country there remains a feeling of pain and resentment, of something having been spoilt or betrayed. To get at the roots of this feeling, Jeremy Seabrook has talked with workers of all ages, kinds and conditions - miners, factory workers, skilled craftsmen, farmers, shop stewards, immigrant labourers, school leavers, pensioners, the unemployed, old socialists and new members of the National Front - in places as different as Wigan and Coventry, Nottingham and Milton Keynes, London and the Rhondda.
'What Went Wrong?' is his moving and disturbing account, rendered mostly in their own words, of how working people live now, and what they think and feel. A book in the tradition of Orwell's classic 'Road To Wigan Pier', it presents no easy answers, but asks questions of vital importance for the political and social future of Britain today.

JEREMY SEABROOK is the author of 'The Unpriviliged' and 'City Close-Up'
