This new volume in the very successful Past in Perspective series, examines the impact of the South Wales Coalfields, not just on a local level but at a national level. Particularly the way it left a long lasting legacy upon the national Labour movement. This accessible yet critical study sheds new light on that history of industrial and political conflict, but at the same time sets that history within the wider context of society as a whole.

Chris Williams is Lecturer in History at the School of History and Archaeology, University of Wales, Cardiff.Review:
“ . . . a valuable addition to the Past in Perspective Series.” –The Economic History Review (The Economic History Review)
“ . . .an innovative and imaginative series . . . This is arguably the first rounded, indeed holistic volume, which strives and achieves, a comprehensive account of the most dynamic part of Wales – the South Wales valleys – in its most vital historical period.” –Labour History Review
(Labour History Review)
“The trick in this kind of writing is to serve the students well and still manage to say something which is fresh to their teachers who will be familiar with the literature. This is what Chris Williams brings off triumphantly. The bibliography is comprehensive (without being exhaustive or exhausting) and enlivened with helpful and illuminating comments on the work surveyed . . . The documents are a real asset and far from the afterthought that they sometimes are in volumes of this kind . . . They are beautifully chosen to complement the text.” –Planet
“. . .a high quality teaching product and research starting point . . . splendid book.” –Social History Bulletin
(Social History Bulletin)
