Storbritannien 1900-1945
Bob Light: Book Review: Nine days that shaped the words
International Socialism Journal nr. 151, jul 16 – side 208
Note: A review of Charles Ferrall and Dougal McNeill, Writing the 1926 General Strike: Literature, Culture, Politics (Cambridge University Press, 2015), £55

Shaun Doherty: Book Review: Learning the lessons of the past
International Socialism Journal nr. 149, jan 16 – side 210
Note: John Newsinger, Them and Us: Fighting the Class War 1910-1939 (Bookmarks, 2015), £7.99
John Newsinger opens this timely account of working class struggle in the first half of the 20th century with what at first seems an incongruous statement: “We live in a period of unprecedented class warfare”. But he argues that the only reason this sounds strange is that the war has been so brutally one-sided in recent years.
Greg Jones: Film Review: Relatives bring the 1926 General Strike in Fife to life
Socialist Worker nr. 2343, mar 13 – side 13

Charlie Kimber: Llanelli 1911: war on the railways

Socialistisk Arbejderavis nr. 6, mar 85 – side 6
Note: Selvom TUC – det engelske LO – fik syv måneder til at forberede en generalstrejke i 1926, så gjorde de intet ud over at holde brandtaler for medlemmerne, hvori de forklarede hvor fast de stod, og hvilken magt fagbevægelsen egentlig besad. Derimod var den engelske regering helt klar over situationens alvor, og den forberedte sig grundigt.
Mike Haynes: The British working class in revolt: 1910-1914
International Socialism Journal nr. 22, dec 83 – side 87
