Product Overview

This book draws on a mass of documentary material to provide a major reinterpretation of British labours response to the Spanish Civil War. It challenges the view that the labour leadership betrayed the Spanish Republic, and that this polarised the movement along left versus right lines. Instead, it argues that the overriding concern of the major leaders was to defend labours institutional interests against the political destabilisation caused by the conflict, rather than to defend Spanish democracy. Although the main advocates of this position were trade union leaders associated with the labour right such as Walter Citrine and Ernest Bevin, the book argues that their dominance reflected the centrality of the trade unions to labour movement decision-making rather than the abuse of union power to achieve political goals. *Author: Buchanan, Tom *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 272 *Publication Date: 2008/08/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.98 x 9.01 x 0.61 inches
