Professor Christopher Wrigley has been a leading authority on British labour and trade union history, and nineteenth- and twentieth-century British history more generally, with much of his writing in the form of biography. Chris was a Labour member of Leicestershire County Council between 1981 and 1989, acting as Labour Chief Whip in 1985 and 1986, and leader of the Labour group between 1986 and 1989. He was also a Labour member of Charnwood Borough Council between 1983 and 1987, acting as deputy leader of the Labour group. The ubiquitous nature of Chris's work makes it difficult to encompass all of his research interests into one volume of essays. Although Chris has written extensively on the British Labour Party, the co-operative movement and May Days, and co-edited Britain's Second Labour Government, 1929-31, much of his work has been presented through the prism of biographical history.
