Studies in Labour History book series

Labour and the Caucus from the Studies in Labour History series

Studies in Labour History provides reassessments of broad themes along with more detailed studies arising from the latest research in the field of labour and working-class history, both in Britain and throughout the world.

It includes studies of labour organizations, including international ones, where there is a need for new research or modern reassessment. It is also its objective to extend the breadth of labour history’s gaze beyond conventionally organized workers

‘…a series which will undoubtedly become an important force in re-invigorating the study of Labour History.’ English Historical Review
