Labour and the Politics of Disloyalty in Belfast, 1921-39–The Moral Economy of Loyalty is the first ‘history from below’ of the inter-war Belfast labour movement. It is a social history of the politics of Belfast labour and applies methodology from history, sociology and political science. The book questions previous analysis that asserted the centrality of religion and sectarian conflict in the establishment of Northern Ireland. Labour and the Politics of Disloyalty suggests that political division and violence were key to the foundation and maintenance of the democratic ancien régime in Northern Ireland. It examines the relationship between Belfast Labour, sectarianism, electoral politics, security and industrial relations policy, and women’s politics in the city. The book will primarily appeal to university students and a specialist readership, but it will also be of interest to readers of twentieth-century British and Irish history, politics and sociology.
