The Lancashire working classes : c.1880-1930 by Trevor Griffiths ( Book )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book examines the experiences and values which shaped working-class life in Britain in the half-century from 1880. It takes as its focus a region, Lancashire, which was central to the social and political changes of the period.

The formation of class identity is traced through developments in the world of work, from the impact of technological and managerial innovations to the elaboration of collective-bargaining procedures. Beyond work, particular attention is paid to the dynamics of neighbourhood and family life, the latter emerging as an important source of continuity in working-class life. The broader impact of such influences are traced through a close examination of the electoral politics of the period."--Jacket
