1.0 out of 5 stars Really?
Full of good information that is badly clouded by the politics of envy and a great deal of supposition. Read for a laugh at how someone can wreck a very serious and important field through poor writing, not as a serious text. Sadly.

5.0 out of 5 stars British trade unionism, 20 Dec 2011
This review is from: Comrade or Brother?: A History of the British Labour Movement (Paperback)
A clear concise history of the development of trade unionism in the UK.The author writes in an uncomplicated, uncluttered style that makes for easy reading.This is not to detract from the worth of the publication. It is a work that has been thoroughly researched and provides the reader with well reasoned arguments that describe the enormous struggles in which organised trade unions have been engaged in over three centuries.

This review is from: Comrade or Brother?: A History of the British Labour Movement (Paperback)
This book is one of those few and far between books, that actually explains the history of the British labour movement. This includes the pre dating, early and official formation of the trade unions, the formation of the labour party and all the things after that. Mary Davis is great at highlighting something other trade union history books either do not report, or have little information on, which is the role of women in the labour movement. She knows her stuff because she advises for the TUC on many union issues, and you may be able to find articles she has written in some TUC literature or on the website. Great book 10/10
