Founded in 1893, the National League of the Blind was the first nationwide self-represented group of visually impaired people in Britain. This book explores its campaign to make the state solely responsible for providing training, employment and assistance for the visually impaired as a right, and its fight to abolish all charitable aid for them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book highlights both the strengths and weaknesses of the League's approach, documenting its successes and the compromises it had to make along the way. ... by shifting the lens from charity to activism it has the potential to build a bridge between disability and labour history that may suggest new approaches to those working in these areas ... ." (Shurlee Swain, Labour History, Issue 110, May, 2016)
