About this product
- DescriptionWork on the miners' Lock-Out of 1926 tends to focus on the perspective of the National Union of Mineworkers, while thing has been written which attempts to examine, for example, how miner's wives coped for six months without pay. The Women and Men of 1926 investigates the Lock-Out from the perspective of gender relations, offering a social history of the mining communities in south Wales during the Lock-Out. Sue Bruley aims to analyse how individual families and households coped with the Lock-Out and to assess how gender relations were affected, using hitherto unpublished oral testimony as well as other archive material. Individual chapters consider topics such as school canteens, miners' lodges, recreational activities, picketing and politics.
