About this book

Introduction

Political protest among the unemployed rose from the end of the 1880s to the 1930s - not so much with the rise in unemployment as with the development of the organizational and cultural resources of the labour movement. In the 1980s this protest has not been matched, despite high levels of unemployment. This book seeks to explain why and to develop a theoretical and empirical analysis of the political responses of the unemployed to unemployment.
