Excellent piece of investigative journalism
16 May 2015
For those who want a thorough account of events during the UK miner's strike and its leader and activist, Arthur Scargill, 'The Enemy Within', is a must. Seamus Milne supports his written work with documented evidence, including dates, times and places, of decisions and conversations between media, politicians, and union leaders, both in the UK and worldwide. An astounding piece of work. I found I had to re-read parts as the information is so comprehensive, I needed another look for it to sink in. One of, if not, the most comprehensive accounts of a crucial time in British history, illustrating the beginnings of the dismantling of the UK union movement.
