The Shadow of the Mine

Coal and the End of Industrial Britain

Huw Beynon, Ray Hudson

Focusing on the lives and experience of the people who lived and worked in the mining towns of the Durham and South Wales coalfields, this study explores the transformation of highly skilled and politicized workforces into disenfranchised working-class communities. By tracing the ‘deep story’ of the coal miners in these formerly important industrial areas, the authors aim to better understand ‘the anger that exploded into the 2016 referendum and the 2019 general election’.
