      Abstract

      The year 2010 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the formation of the Society for the
      Study of Labour History (SSLH). This is celebrated by the appearance of these two
      collections, Histories of Labour: National and International Perspectives and Making
      History: Organisations of Labour Historians in Britain. Both these impressive
      publications creatively reflect upon the evolution of the SSLH over the last fifty years
      and place it firmly at the front of the historiography of labour in Britain, and partly
      within that of seven other countries. These two volumes are therefore vital if we are
      to understand the ebb and flow of labour history and how it has evolved to meet the
      challenges of the past, present, and future.
