Spartacus Website: British Trade Unionism
This book contains specially commissioned essays by labour historians of international repute. The authors analyse key debates, question dominant paradigms, acknowledge minority critiques and consider future directions. This book will be of interest to historians of working-class political parties and organisations, to students of trade unionism, industrial conflict and to social scientists interested in social and political protest, the relations between employers and the state and post-structuralism. It should be considered for adoption as a key text for undergraduate and postgraduate modules dealing with historiography generally as well as on courses more specifically concerned with labour and social history.

Spartacus Website: The Socialist League
This work approaches the phenomenon of guild socialism from a new perspective, focusing on the Douglas Social Credit movement. It explores the key ideas, gives an overview of the main theories and traces their subsequent history. Thoroughly researched, it provides original material relevant to the field of political economy. This early approach to non-equilibrium economics reveals the extent of the incompatibility between capitalist growth economics and social and environmental sustainability.
