This history offers an assessment of British industrial relations between the outbreak of the World War II and the advent of Margaret Thatcher's government in 1979. Written by a group of specialists, the book examines the role of the government, the unions and the employers, the influence of social welfare considerations on industrial relations in the docks, the motor manufacturing industry and road haulage between 1945 and 1979. This text is both a survey and an addition to the literature which includes several chapters based upon new research. As well as revealing the complexities of British industrial relations in these four decades, the book also includes consideration of the extent to which, if at all, problems of industrial relations adversely affected the performance of the British economy.
