  • From a Rock to a Hard Place: The 1984/85 Miners’ Strike
  • Author Beverley Trounce
  • Dimensions: 198 x 129 mm

By the end of the notorious 1984/85 miners’ strike many wanted to forget their painful experiences. Many years on people are ready to look back and talk about what happened in Britain during this defining moment of industrial action.

In this new and updated edition, Beverley Trounce, who worked in a pit village and whose father was a miner, delivers a candid account of this heroic struggle through the voices of people directly affected by the strike. Her research and contributions from ex-striking miners and activists cover the pickets, the collieries, the matter of simple survival through the extreme and grinding poverty of the time, the effects on the women and children involved and the wider community, as well as the aftermath and what its legacy means to people today.

From a Rock to a Hard Place is a powerful and moving record of a divisive moment in history.
