Log-in for full text

The Introduction outlines the significance of the study, and provides a clear justification for its publication, namely the paucity of academic texts on this major episode in British labour history. It also emphasises the book’s originality by highlighting its extensive utilisation of primary and archival sources, many of which have only recently become publicly available. In view of both the virtual absence of other books on this topic, with the notable exception of Peter Jenkins’ Battle of Downing Street, and the originality of the sources used, the Introduction emphasises the importance of this text in breaking new ground, and filling a major gap in the literature on this topic. The Introduction also outlines the structure of the book, and highlights the issues which will be addressed.
