From the rear side cover: The 1915 rent strike in Glasgow during the First World War has become one of the most famous episodes associated with the legendary Red Clydeside conflicts. It was a dispute that was settled by the government in favour of the strikers when they introduced the Rent Restrictions Act, which capped rents for the duration of the war. As this book will argue, the success of the strike was not only due to events on the west coast, but to the national urban character of the strike. This book explores the housing situation and development of socialism on the east coast of Scotland and will, for the first time, describe in detail the strikes that took place in Dundee and to a lesser extent Aberdeen, Kirkcaldy and Leith.
