Abstract:

"After the repeal of the Combination Acts in the 1820s, collective labour enjoyed limited freedoms. When that regime collapsed under judicial challenge during the 1860s, governments were obliged to devise a new legal frameworks for trade unions and strikes. This study traces how, in adjudicating between opposing conceptions of 'free trade' and 'free labour', official opinion came to favour an unrestricted freedom to combine, and sought to withdraw the criminal law from industrial relations. It also reveals the impact upon policy-makers of the contemporary assaults upon classical political economy, and of the historicized critiques of labour law propounded by Liberal writers. Drawing upon previously unused governmental sources, this account provides many wider insights into the nature and inner-workings of the mid-Victorian state."--Résumé de l'éditeur.
