Publication: Knights Across The Atlantic By Steven Parfitt

 Knights Across The Atlantic

The book explains the unusual career of an American labour movement, the Knights of Labor, in Britain and Ireland at the end of the nineteenth century. It details the ways in which the Knights contributed to the birth of the British Labour Party and the growth of trade unionism in Britain in the poorest and most deprived parts of the country.
