This multifaceted text, written by authors from a range of disciplines, focuses on the politics of trade unionism - not only unions' relations with political parties and the state but also on the politics of workplace conflict and industrial action.
Scene-setting essays provide broad perspectives on trade union organising, and on the parameters of the post-war industrial environment, Case studies consider particular fields:
* Union relations with the Labour Party
* International politics
* Productivity
* Major strikes and
* Key groups of workers.
