About this title


This new history of trade unions offers the most concise and up-to-date account of three hundred years of trade union development, from the earliest documented attempts at collective action by working people in the eighteenth century through to the very different world of "New Unionism" and "New Labour" at the end of the millennium. The author treats trade unionism as an interaction of workers, employers and the state as they all faced changing economic and social expectations, changing markets and changing political perceptions. The book brings together the fruits of recent research which has moved away from studying the internal organization of trade unions to setting trade union developments alongside managerial demands, employers' organizations, technological developments and the role of the state.
