Descrizione

The long-term decline of the British coal industry has had serious and lasting implications for miners, their families and communities. Out of the Ashes? Presents an authoritative review of the history and current state of this process. Drawing on their own research in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire mining communities, the authors chart the impact of pit closures, of their threat, on community life. The viability and working practices of the restructured industry are examined alongside case studies of successful and failed worker take-overs. The management of decline and attempts to stimulate the local economies affected are compared with very different strategies pursued in Germany, Belgium and Spain. The book concludes with an examination of the likely future of what remains of the industry and the prospects of the communities it once supported. Written in an accessible style,Out of the Ashes? Will engage all who have a professional or personal interest in the decline of the British coal mining industry, as well as academic and students of regional studies, sociology, psychology and the social sciences in general.
