This book provides an excellent history of the fight against fascism and racism that has taken place in Britain over the last 80 or so years. It begins with the 1930's and the infamous Battle of Cable Street - the confrontation in 1936 between the police, fascists and anti-fascists in London's Jewish neighbourhood, before going on to chart the 43 group and the Defence Debate during the Second World War, the 1950's and the rise of racism, the 1960's and the war on the streets, the emergence of Asian Youth Movements in the early 1980's, how Rock against Racism mobilised a generation against the National Front, right up until more recent events in Oldham and Keighley today...

The condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
