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 not ideal and it may upset one or two people. 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.
