Browsing my Dad's Socialism bookshelf, I found:

MAY 1926 "The General Strike"
Britain's Aborted Revolution?

Christopher Farman
(Panther, 1974)
I've flicked through it, it doesn't impress me...

Anyone know it? Read or burn?

Hi Pikel, I just finished reading Chris Farman's book.

It does not give a 'LibCom' perspective but I learnt much through the book and in certain chapters it does provide a history 'from below'.
