The Struggle for Survival in the
Coalfield Communities of Britain

by Ken Coates and Michael Barratt Brown

This book examines some alternatives created by local people and some of the difficulties which they have experienced. It looks at the sources of official funding and finds them inadequate to meet the needs of the coalfield communities. It makes a strong appeal to stop the drift, and bring real support to the project of renewing the coalfield economies.
