If you want to find out the life of an ancestor who was involved in the labour movement or was a union member, this handbook will be fascinating introduction to the subject. Mark Crail provides a graphic and authoritative account of the history of the labour movement in Britain from the early
nineteenth century to the modern day.

He gives a vivid insight into the key stages in the development of labour relations - the battles fought by labour movement pioneers, the formation of the
first unions, the influence of Chartism and the early socialist societies, the rise of the Labour Party and other left-wing groups, and the impact of organised
labour workers' lives as ordinary people gradually won the right to vote over the course of 200 years.

At the same time he describes in detail the various books, museums, archives, websites and other resources that researchers can use to explore labour history for themselves and to uncover the careers and experience of their ancestors.

A mass of information is available relating to individuals and to labour history in general, and this handbook is an invaluable guide to it.
