A History of British Trade Unions Since 1889: 1934-1951
In the third and final volume of the authoritative History of the British Trade Unions since 1889, Hugh Armstrong Clegg traces the story of the trade unions, their policies, their leaders, and their relations with government. He carefully sets his study against the economic and political background of the period, and provides a wealth of valuable detail. This is a comprehensive and dispassionate account by a leading authority on British trade unions, which will be an important source for all historians of the labor movement in Britain.
