Description


Based on a first-hand account of a worker involved in campaigning for better rights and conditions for himself and his co-workers, this book reveals how one individual working in the mining industry in the UK in the second half of the 20th century managed to effect real change. His words and actions are truly inspirational and serve as a timely reminder of how far we've come, as well as how influential one person can really be - whatever his current economic or political standing. Peppered with primary source documents, photographs and contributions from members of the original author's family, the book makes interesting reading for anyone who cares about justice, equality and dignity. Most importantly, it puts our current economic and political challenges in perspective... Do we really have so much to complain about? Dangerously, or fortunately perhaps (since it's clear we all stand to benefit), this book is likely to spur any would-be campaigner to take up arms and fight.
