This review is from: Black Diamonds: The Rise and Fall of an English Dynasty (Paperback)
An absorbing read both from the point of view of the history of the family and the coal mining industry and the political reactions to the miners unrest after the First World War . The injustice is appalling and the fact that it was ignored not through ignorance but through the power of money. One admires the research that has gone into the writing of this book and the way it is written.
