"To Delightful Measures Changed" Reflections on the 1978/79 Winter of Discontent


Product Information

The 1978-79 Winter of Discontent, forgotten and repressed as it may be, nevertheless still haunts the memory of this society. The last great mass success of the class struggle for the employed section of the working class in the UK it also marked the beginning of the new epoch- the Thatcherist counter-revolution, a decisive change of strategy for British capital. The only time politicians and the media can bring themselves to mention it is as their ultimate horror scenario, one that must never be allowed to happen again.

This pamphlet recounts the build-up to the events on 1978-79, details (and celebrates) some of the crucial struggles, and analyses them in their economic and political context. It also asks searching questions about the past, present and future role of autonomous workers' movements and trade unionism.
