Anyone with an interest in Irish politics and society during the early years of the 20th century will benefit enormously from this, the first full-scale study of the most important labor dispute in the country's history. Yeates, industry and employment correspondent for The Irish Times, provides a compelling narrative of the event from start to finish. What began as a walkout by Dublin tramcar men in August 1913 quickly mushroomed into a citywide lockout of 15,000 workers in scores of trades. The next five months saw violence erupt on the streets, strikers and their families endure appalling hardship, and the dispute end in victory for the employers. Yeates provides vivid portraits of the main protagonists on both sides and gives as good a sense of what life was like for Dublin's poor as can be found anywhere. He also shows how the lockout promoted militant nationalism and determined the future course of trade unionism in Ireland. A big book with a big price tag, it is nevertheless highly recommended for general readers, undergraduates, graduates, and professionals. G. Owens Huron College
