"Ian Isaac's book, although primarily an account of his role in the South Wales coalfield and NUM from 1974 to 1991, … shows that there could have been a better outcome that would have greatly improved the lives of the majority of people living in the UK.”

Ken Smith, Chairman of the NUJ in Wales.


“This book gives a full and unique flavour of the battles over the future of coal in the South Wales area, while also setting it in a context of the wider national and international political developments of the time.”

Phil White Former Tower Colliery Director.
