by Geoffrey Goodman

Frank Cousins was General Secretary of the Transport and General Workers’ Union from 1956 to 1969. During those years he helped change the Labour Party and the TUC, and in so doing influenced an entire generation.

… a good book on a great theme …
Michael Foot, Guardian

I know of no better account of the events in
the TUC and Labour Party during Cousins’ years
from 1956 to 1969.

George Aitken, AUEW Journal

… a vital text for anyone who wants to understand the underlying truth of the Labour Movement.
Richard Clements, Tribune

Geoffrey Goodman has done every bit as good a job as Bullock did in his study of Bevin.
Peter Paterson, Spectator
