Justice Denied: Friends, Foes & the Miners' Strike


Manufacturer: Merlin Press

Product Information

"What were the issues at stake in the great miners' strike of 1984–85?

This book challenges images, looks at the impact of the strike on participants, and reflects on ongoing controversies and community pride.

It is organised into three parts. In early chapters participants look back Political controversies are examined: Was the strike the result of careful planning (on the part of the Thatcher government, and/or the National Union of Mineworkers)? Why were miners determined not to be 'balloted out of their jobs'? Why did miners in Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and elsewhere support, or oppose, the strike? How did the BBC and ITV misrepresent police action and show miners as 'out of control'?"

Edited by David Allsop, Carol Stephenson and David Wray. Merlin Press, 2017.
