Abstract

Eileen Janes Yeo's brief chapter on 'Early British Labour Movements in Relation to Family Need' moves masterfully across the 19th century identifying institutions and practices that working people created for themselves to respond to their own needs for dignity, security, and pleasure. In looking at institutions like co-operative stores she counters the tendency of some of the other articles to treat unions as if they were foreign to the workers who join them or 'risks' that had to be rationally assessed.
