First published in 1960. This title is a study of one of the most controversial alliances in British political history. The ‘wage freeze’, Bevanism, the block vote, nuclear disarmament: these are only a few of the points at which the unions’ activities within the Labour Party had roused hot debate. Drawing extensively on previously unpublished material and on discussions with past members of the Labour Movement, the author creates a survey of what the partnership really amounted to.
