Volume XI pays particular attention to the role and contributions of women and the multi-nationality of the British Labour movement. Each entry is accompanied by a thorough bibliography and incorporates the most recent historical scholarship in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Reviews of previous volumes:

Volume II

'The real lasting value of this splendid book chiefly derives from the decision of its compilers to dig far deeper than the top layer of national personalities in labour's history. Here are countless, moving elegiac pieces on those local men and women who played such a crucial part in the growth of working-class politics and trade unionism.' - Professor Stephen Koss, Times Literary Supplement

Volume IV

'The series as a whole must be required reading for postgraduates embarking on research in Labour history - not only for the biographies, but also for the bibliographical information.' - Dr C.J. Wrigley, Economic History Review

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 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. There is a scholarly excitement in picking up each new tome and looking to see how many old friends are in, how many have yet to appear, and what new names (some quite obscure or provincial) one will meet. This eighth volume is no disappointment, containing as it does a good deal on 1790-1848 radicalism as well as on the 1880-1914 classical period of labour history. 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
