‘Cowie Miners, Polmaise Colliery and the 1984-85 Miners’ Strike’

Scottish Labour History Society’s new publication
Reproduced in this new 146-page book are two pamphlets by the late Steve McGrail, reporting from the white heat of struggle by Stirlingshire miners during the 1984-85 miners’ strike. Jim Phillips, author of ‘Collieries, Communities and the Miners’ Strike in Scotland, 1984-5′ and co-editor of Scottish Labour History Journal, provides a trenchant retrospective commentary,

This is the first in a planned series of occasional publications by Scottish Labour History, the long-running annual Journal of the Scottish Labour History Society (Vol. 52: 2017 just published).
