Synopsis: This comprehensive study examines British shipbuilding and industrial relations from 1870 to 1950, addressing economic, social and political history to provide an holistic approach to industry, trade-unionism and the early history of the Labour Party. Examining the impact of new machinery, of independent rank-and-file movements and of craft and trade unions, The Tide of Democracy provides an authoritative account of industrial action in shipyards in the period and their effect on the birth and development of the Labour Party. This volume is clearly presented, elegantly written and suffused with a distinctly human touch which brings the technical material to life. Unique in the combined attention it gives to Scottish and English history, and drawing upon an impressive range of primary sources, this volume will be indispensable for specialist researchers, undergraduates and graduate students.

About the Author: Alastair J. Reid is a Fellow of Girton College, Cambridge.

Book Description Condition: New. This study examines British shipbuilding in its heyday, bringing together original discussions of the organisation of production, the relationship between leaders and members of the industry's key trade union, and the involvement of that union in wider labour politics. It combines a broad account of the whole period from 1870 to 1950 with thorough investigations of the impact of new machinery on skills, the significance of independent rank-and-file movements and the role of craft unions in the origins and early development of the Labour Party. It examines shipyards in all of their major locations, including detailed studies of industrial movements on Clydeside and the north-east coast of England. By bringing together economic, social and political history, Reid demonstrates an affinity between a way of life and a distinctive view of the world. Seller Inventory # 2637
