Radical Glasgow, by John Couzin
Published by Voline Press, 182 pages. Paperback (N6398CHX1)
From the rear side cover: This book..... has considerable more information on the struggles of the ordinary people of Glasgow, as they strive to improve their conditions and those of others. It is of course far too rich a subject to be covered in one simple little book, however I hope this little book will give you an insight into that rich history and encourage you to dig a little deeper and perhaps learn from those who have struggled in the past to create a better world for all. I also hope that it may encourage those who read it to carry on that struggle. It is a struggle that the citizens of Glasgow can be justly proud.
There are chapters on the Glasgow weavers strike in 1787, the SMA shot strike of 1856, Rent Strikes, the Scottish Labour Party, the Clyde Workers Committee, the First World War Peace movement, the General Strike, the Upper Clyde ship builders, and the birth of Scottish anarchism, as well as chapters on individuals such as Thomas Muir, Mary Barbour, John MacLean, Guy Aldred, Ethel MacDonald, Rita Milton and many others.
Condition of the book is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and bound.
