Harry Patterson, Five Leaves, £9.99
At the start of the Great Miners' Strike in March 1984 Nottinghamshire's coal-mining industry was second in size only to Yorkshire's with 32,000 employed in the pits. But of those, less than 2,000 workers stayed out for the duration of the year-long strike.
Harry Patterson's useful history of the strike in Nottinghamshire asks why the majority of its miners scabbed.
When the Nottinghamshire miners were balloted in mid-March on whether to join the action with the rest of the NUM, only one in four Notts miners voted to back it.
