This study, embracing recent and mostly new research, places Red Clydeside in context and gives perspective to the role of the First World War as an incubator of heightened class consciousness and militancy in the region. The extent to which the years 1910-1914 marked a watershed in industrial relations has been widely debated in the British literature, but hitherto there has been no systematic treatment of the pre-war 'labour unrest' in Scotland. This work will have a wide appeal to labour activists, to students of history and industrial relations, and to all those with an interest in the social history of Scottish workers and their relations with employers.
