Review of 'United We Stand', Alastair Reid, Penguin £14.99

The title and presentation of this book will give it an appeal to many socialists and union activists. On the back cover, Tony Benn introduces it as 'a very comprehensive and readable history... timely because trade unionism is now re-awakening to its historic task'. Unusually for an academic in recent years, Alastair Reid concludes that 'past precedents suggest that... we are about to see a major revival of trade unionism'.
