Miners in the Ruhr and South Wales 1890-1926

Leighton S. James

Published by Manchester University Press

Critical Labour Movement Studies MUP

  • The first book to provide a genuinely comparative history of two of the most important industrial regions in Western Europe
  • Argues that the examination of language can be integrated with the study of structural and material factors, and emphasises the important, dynamic relationship between the two
  • Takes a regional viewpoint, representing a departure from the current trend in Welsh history towards microhistory
  • Introduces discourse analysis, which has not been widely used in Welsh or German labour history
