Description

A long out of print biography of James Larkin who ranks alongside James Connolly as one of Ireland's great working class leaders. Larkin, a committed socialist militant, united and led Belfast's Catholic and protestant dock workers in a bitter dispute with the Unionist bosses in 1907. In the ensuing conflict thousands of Orangemen declared solidarity with Larkin and the police mutinied in support of the strikers. This book helps increase understanding of the man who some considered the greatest revolutionary syndicalist of his time.show more
