Acknowledgements Introduction A Tale of Three Cities: Bristol, Belfast and Dublin Trade Union Growth: a Comparison The Labour Movement: a Wider View The Belfast Shipyard Workers: a Study in Organised Labour Industrial Relations Working Class or Classes? Living Conditions and Problems Sectarianism War and Rebellion Conclusion Notes on Chapters Bibliography Index
The city of Belfast tends to be discussed in terms of its distinctiveness from the rest of Ireland, an industrial city in an agricultural country. However, when compared with another 'British' industrial port such as Bristol it is the similarities rather than the differences that are surprising. When these cities are compared with Dublin, the contrasts become even more painfully evident. This book seeks to explore these contrasting urban centres at the start of the twentieth century.
