Images of the Past: The Miners' Strike
Images of the Past: The Miners' Strike
by Mark Metcalf
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A review worth repeating, 21 May 2014
Having lived through the Strike of 1984 and its aftermath, I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. Very moving and evocative. I couldn't say any better about it than the review published in the Daily Mirror 14 March 2014.

Images of the Past: the Miners's Strike by Martin Jenkinson, Mark Metcalf
and Mark Harvey
Byline: PAUL ROUTLEDGE

The 30th anniversary of the start of the miners' Great Strike For Jobs has been marked with an equally great outpouring of books, articles and media programmes.
This is a story that will never go away. And if you buy only one book about it, get Images Of The Past: The Miners' Strike [Pen and Sword Books, Barnsley, PS14.99], with poignant and sometimes troubling pictures by Martin Jenkinson, official photographer of the Yorkshire NUM who died of cancer two years ago.
The text, by Mark Metcalf and Mark Harvey, tells the tale, no holds barred, of the most momentous event of modern working-class history.

It should never be forgotten..."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for true fans of the game, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As someone who knows little about football, I bought this book as a present for a couple of avid fans, whose interest passes beyond the borders of tribal fanship, into a wider perspective of the game. Both books were received with great thanks and the feedback was more than enthusiastic in both cases, leading me to believe it was an enjoyable and informative read. I would certainly recommend it to other fans of the game - or to those looking for something for fans of the game!
