Reviews

'Vicky Long's wide-ranging book makes a welcome contribution to the field by concentrating upon the twentieth-century factory, an area so far largely neglected. The book...offers new insights to historians of labour and industrial relations, business historians, and political historians concerned with the role of the state in twentieth-century society. That the book speaks to these diverse audiences is a mark of its success.' - Mike Esbester, Oxford Brookes University, Social History of Medicine
