Event Navigation

Presented by Professor Huw Beynon.

Professor Huw Beynon edited ‘Digging Deeper.  Issues in the Miners’ Strike’, and has held Professorships at Manchester and Cardiff Universities.

Of ‘Digging Deeper’, E P Thompson wrote: “Digging Deeper is the first analysis of the miners’ strike which is adequate to the issues …. It is refreshingly free from easy sloganizing …. and gives the problem back to all of us – not the ‘miners’ crisis’  but our own”.

Sheila Rowbotham said that ‘Digging Deeper’, “Documents the government’s ruthless annexation of the energy establishment, the law, social security and sections of the media.”
