the miners' strike for jobs 1984-5
By Peter Arkell & Ray Rising
96 pages | 80 photos: £7.99
Now that the economic and financial crash is joined by a deep political crisis within the British state, the opportunities are present for picking up where the miners were forced to leave off. Their insistence in 1984-5 on placing social needs before profit is just as critical and essential a quarter of a century later. Miners showed that workers will fight for an alternative to the wilful destruction of jobs and communities by capitalism if they have a firm and principled leadership. Our challenge today is to build a movement that will complete the unfinished business of the miners' strike.

Irish-born Gerry Healy (1913-1989) joined the Communist Party whilst a merchant seaman, only to be expelled for Trotskyism during the Spanish civil war. He became a leading figure in the Fourth International. In Britain he founded the Socialist Labour League and in 1973, the Workers Revolutionary Party.
The book is divided into two parts, which cover the whole of Gerry Healy's life. The first part is a personal account of the last four and a half years of his life, when Corinna Lotz was his political secretary and close collaborator. The second part outlines Healy's work in the revolutionary movement from his arrival in England in 1928 up until 1985. The authors draw on party documents as well as their own personal experiences.
In the centre of the book is a fold-out section showing the projection of the path of cognition developed as a teaching aid by Gerry Healy.
