The period from 1910 to 1939 was one of the most explosive in
British working class history.
Them and Us looks at how the class struggle—embracing
the struggles of women workers, immigrant workers, the
unemployed and the fight against fascism—was fought in
these years.
The Labour Party and trade union leaderships were key
players in the conflict, but their actions were often intended to
undermine working class struggle. The ruling class had much to
thank them for.
Today when the working class is under a sustained and
unprecedented attack from the Tories, Them and Us is an
essential reminder of how past struggles were fought, of
the unscrupulous nature of our enemy and of the need for
militancy and solidarity to defeat them.
John Newsinger draws on the words and actions of working
class activists—and of their enemies—to bring to life key
episodes in the struggle.
Defeating the attempt to solve the current crisis at the expense
of the working class requires a level of struggle that has not
been seen in this country for many years. This is what we
have to work towards and build for. Them and Us is a vital
contribution to this fight.
