The Background to the Miners Strike - What Really Happened to the Coal Industry? by Michael Barratt Brown

Published by the Institute for Workers Control in 1972, 22 pages. Small booklet - c.20cm by 13cm (N4041P1)

This booklet examines the background to the 1972 Miners Strike, when the National Union of Mineworkers under Joe Gormley confronted the National Coal Board (NCB) and Ted Heath's Tory government over pay. It was the first time since the General Strike of 1926 that the miners had taken industrial action, and it lasted for around six weeks, and this short booklet explains the causes of the strike by lookings at the industry in the years preceeding '72.

Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. Their is a very small amount of wear on the front cover where an old price is printed.
