This title was first published in 2002: The trade union movement in twentieth-century Britain has been a cornerstone for society's marginalized members - women, disabled people, lesbians and gay men and people from black and ethnic minority communities. As these groups of workers self-organized to reform their unions, they built a bridge between the old? social movement based around class position and labour identity and the new? social movements based around civil rights and status stratifications. This book presents a detailed look at self-organization within public sector unions through the emergence of four self-organized groups within NALGO and later, UNISON. Drawing upon unique insider knowledge of the alliances and antipathies between the self-organized groups and the host union, the book also provides fascinating revelations of the tensions between self-organized groups themselves. This study will be essential reading for students of political sociology and industrial relations.

'Jill Humphrey has produced a richly woven, eloquent account of the cleavages, battles and alliances engendered by social movement politics. Deeply relevant to anyone concerned with discrimination, identity and coalition-building, this is a thoughtful, sensitive and ultimately life-affirming work.' Professor Davina Cooper, University of Keele, UK 'Jill Humphrey's book engages with urgent political questions that confront us in a fractured and unequal world. From a study of self-organization in the trades union movement, she examines the practices, problems and potential of the politics of difference in contemporary society. Her analysis - both rigorous and thought provoking - demands reading by anyone concerned with the possibilities of challenging social inequalities and oppressions.' John Clarke, Professor of Social Policy, Open University, UK 'The richness of the data gathered and the depth of analysis offered by the book are testament to the utility of the methodological approach employed.' Industrial Relations Journal '...this book is a fascinating micro-study of one aspect of the movement... Sage Race Relations Abstracts

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
