This introductory chapter begins by considering the work of the major non-Marxist labour historians of the post-1945 generation: work which is still widely respected and used as a source of empirical detail but, long overshadowed by the more critical and more conceptually explicit approaches of the 1960s and 1970s, has come to be regarded as lacking in any real intellectual interest. This is followed by a brief discussion of shipyard workers and social relations in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Britain. An overview of the three parts of the book is also presented.

Keywords: non-Marxist labour historians; shipyard workers; social relations; Britain
