A landmark study in the history of working class labour
organisations, WORLDS OF LABOUR is a sequel to the author's widely
acclaimed LABOURING MEN. WORLDS OF LABOUR is a series of studies
that considers the formation and evolution of working classes in
the period between the late eighteenth century and the
mid-twentieth, scrutinising their 'consciousness', ways of life and
the movements they generated. The emphasis throughout the study is
on the way labour organisations, policies and ideas were rooted in
the everyday reality of working class life. In the process, leading
Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm reveals the daily struggles of
working class militants, many of whom are still unknown to the
modern world. The result is a book that is expansive in scope, but
fluent and clear in detail. It will serve as a valuable source of
reference to those with an academic interest in the subject, and as
an inspiration to those who simply wish to discover the development
of working class movements.
