Review Quotes
Times Higher Education Supplement

“The SWMF was almost unique among British unions in that it dominated not only the working life but also the leisure, cultural and even religious activities of the Welsh coal valleys. . . The book then is really more than an orthodox union history. It is the history of a society that experienced all the drabness and desolation of the depression. It is detailed and marvellously evocative.” –Times Higher Education Supplement

Labour History Review

“. . . another excellent book . . .” –Labour History Review
