John Tully, who also authored the seminal book on the rubber industry (The Devil's Milk), has in this book done another wonderful job of historical research and writing. The strike at Silverton was championed by Eleanor Marx, who worked tirelessly to support the strikers. She also taught one of the strike's leaders to read! The horrors of working class life in London at the turn of the nineteenth century are described in vivid detail by John Tully and these alone make the book an eye-opener and a chilling read. We at Monthly Review Press are proud to have published this fine book.
