The Many Not The Few: An Illustrated History of Britain Shaped by the People

by Sean Michael Wilson and Robert Brown - £9.99  New Internationalist Publications Ltd (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780264448 | ISBN 10: 1780264445

An old union rep, Joe, and his granddaughter, Arushi, spend a few pleasant days together going over the history of the labour movement. Over tea and sandwiches in his studio they consider the whole wide sweep and points of connection throughout history.
Starting way back with the 14th-century Peasants' Revolt, taking in the Levellers and the Luddites, the expansion of the unions in the 19th century, the height of their power in the 70s, and the great conflicts and decline of the 80s.
Leavening serious research with family jokes, Joe and Arushi investigate the complicated history, the ideological battles and the class conflict before considering what unions are for and what their future may be.
