"In the inter-war years, 50% of the working population were in some way touched by unemployment...What did they do to survive?"
In whats proven to be a very timely and penetrating study, Phil Katz examines the impact of mass unemployment on people, communities and politics in Britain in the 1920s and 30s and why there is so little action to prevent the scourge of unemployment today.
