The Left Book Club is extremely proud to announce the publication of our paperback edition of Gregor Gall’s biography of Bob Crow. Bob Crow was by far the best-known union leader of his generation. He was also the most militant. In the first biography of this towering figure of the union movement, Gregor Gall, Professor of Industrial Relations at the University of Bradford, examines Bob Crow’s leadership of the RMT, investigating and exposing the myths created about him by his political opponents. The book reveals how Bob Crow used his personality, his politics and the power of the RMT membership to punch above his weight in industrial relations and on the political stage, helping the small union become as influential, if not more than, its much larger counterparts.
