From the cover: “At the present time, British trade unionism plays a more important part in the nation’s economy than ever before, and its problems of internal reform and its relations with the government and with the public are constantly under discussion. The present structure of the movement can only be understood in relation to its long history; yet thirty-five years have elapsed since the last attempt was made to present a comprehensive study of its evolution. In this period, the unions themselves have grown rapidly and undergone many and far-reaching changes. Mr Felling acknowledges a debt to the Webbs and to G. D. H. Cole, the pioneers whose work on the subject remains valuable for present-day students. He has, however, sought to incorporate the results of more recent research in a new general account of the beginnings to the 1960s; and he has suggested some new lines of interpretation for the story of trade unionism as we now know it.”
