Robert Gildea will be talking about his new book "Backbone of the Nation". In this groundbreaking history, Robert interviews those miners and their families who fought to defend themselves. Exploring mining communities from across the UK including Fife, Gildea shows how the miners organised to protect themselves, and how a network of activists and families mobilised to support them. This event is held in the Canmore Room.
