Political Dissent in Westmorland From 1880 - 1930
In his examination of fifty years of Westmorland’s history Roger Smalley focuses on the role of dissent.
This study reveals the strength of Westmorland’s involvement with national protest movements between 1880 and 1930.
What emerges is a history which gives a place to those who challenged the establishment – the supporters of votes for women, of fairer working conditions, of local democracy, and of peaceful solutions to differences between nations.
Roger Smalley is the author of ‘Depression and the New Deal’, ‘The Westmorland Suffragists’, ‘Theodora Wilson Wilson, Westmorland’s Forgotten Rebel’ and ‘The Labour Movement in Westmorland’.
