Reviews of previous volumes:

Volume III

'...fascinating picture of the richness and diversity of the British labour tradition.'- The Times

Volume VI

'The Dictionary becomes more valuable as it progresses...the work remains a monument to scholarship and the British people.'- Professor E.J. Hobsbawm, New Society

Volume VII

'The Dictionary is now well estabilshed as a central source for details of careers and bibliographic information.'- Dr H.C.G. Matthew, English Historical Review

Volume VIII

'The Dictionary of Labour Biography continues on its course (the first volume appeared in 1972) and with each successive volume becomes more and more valuable...The Dictionary is of course far more than a collection of biographical entries. It is a huge pot-pourri of labour, socialist, radical and popular history.'- Professor J.F.C. Harrison, Labour History Review

Volume IX

'...Tych, author of the biographical dictionary of the Polish workers' movement, recently remarked of the DLB, in conversation among a group of participants at the Linz conference [of labour historians] that it is 'simply the best'...Tych's command of European languages and familiarity with the other dictionaries...and the general respect in which he is held, gave authority to the statement.'- John Halstead, Labour History Review
