The following is based on what was originally the Book of the Month at Unite Education – a project that ran from mid 2013 to early 2018.
On May Day 2020, a book- (and film-) categories recommendations section was started and is being added to on a regular basis
A note to these links
If you can, please buy titles from progressive/trade union organised bookshops
The book-links used on these pages are all to http://www.amazon.co.uk. This is purely for bibliographical detail about the books, and in no way an endorsement to use Amazon for purchase. Sadly, there is not the time to keep regularly updating the lists so a potential buyer can get them from a progressive/trade union organised bookshop.
If you are keen and willing to take the time purchasing books from such shops then we would recommend the following:-
- Trade unions are recognised by Waterstones bookseller chain.
