Yours For The Revolution – The Evolution of Tom Mann’s Political Thought


Tom Mann remains Britain’s most accomplished trade unionist but each generation has to rediscover him. With the current union upsurge his time has come round again.

Mann’s theory of socialism and class organisation was literally forged in the fiercest and most decisive union battles, extending over a fifty year period.  Yet little is known of his activity in the last two decades of his life, when he had his greatest impact and most enduring influence.

This was recognised throughout Europe, China, Australia, the USA and the Soviet Union. “Yours for the revolution” will fascinate and inspire. It covers his major strikes, organisations and the evolution of his political thought.

It makes for vital reading for those seeking a path to socialism today.
