THE GREAT BETRAYAL BLACK FRIDAY AND THE 1921 MINERS' LOCKOUT
£10.99, ISBN 978-1-9168931-0-8

Author, M M Borodin, Translated by Pete Dickenson

Published for the first time in English on the 100th anniversary of the 1921 lockout of more than a million miners. The Great Betrayal is a unique record of Black Friday, a momentous event in British labour history that Lloyd George later compared to a civil war.

Writing in the immediate aftermath of the dispute, the author condemns rightwing trade union and Labour Party leaders for betraying their members and the whole working class: “the working class could expect to live through yet more and still worse betrayals until it freed

itself from its right wing leaders”…“But at the same time, with every fresh deception, with each

new betrayal, it is increasingly determined to be free.”
