Signed by the author [Rex Adams] on the first blank — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. A study of the National Shipbuilding and Engineering dispute of 1957. From the introduction: “During 1956 the Leverhulme Trustees made a grant to Nuffield College for research in industrial relations over a period of seven years. The College thereupon began to plan projects to be carried out within the terms of the grant, and work commenced in the autumn of 1956. When a national shipbuilding strike was called in March 1957, and followed by an engineering strike, it seemed such an important event within the field of industrial relations that other work was temporarily laid aside to permit us to concentrate on a study of the strike. This book is the result.”
