Talking Work: an Oral History Summary

Talking Work: an Oral History by Trevor Blackwell

In a series of interviews spanning the 20th century, people talk about what work - or the lack of it - means to them. The voices of coachmen, bootmakers, servants and steel workers are echoed in the conversations of truck drivers, print-shop workers, hairdressers and redundant miners. These life stories reveal connections between work and identity, and raise questions about what happens to that identity when work becomes ever more elusive.
