Laybourn, Keith (2011) Histories of Labour: National and International Perspectives, by Joan Allen, Alan Campbell and John McIlroy, eds. and Making History: Organizations of Labour Historians in Britain since 1960, by John McIlroy, Alan Campbell, John Halstead and David Martin, eds. Labor History, 52 (3). pp. 347-349. ISSN 0023-656X

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.
