From the rear side cover: This pamphlet (part one of two) examines the support given by Bristol socialists to the rise of New Unionism, as worker militancy in Bristol exploded between September and December 1889. Drawing on many new sources it presents a detailed picture of strikes in the city during this period...

A notable feature of these strikes was the involvement of women workers and the leading part played by two middle class women - Miriam Daniell and Helena Born. Formerly members of the Bristol Women's Liberal Association, by the autumn of 1889 they had become active in the Bristol socialist society - and it was the involvement and influence of this organisation in the events of the upsurge that added to the concern of employers and the citys ruling elite

Condition of the booklet is generally excellent. The cover is clean and tidy, the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound
