Book of the month

Tutors on Unite education courses often get asked what books they would recommend reading. As a result we have decided to  launch a book - or books - of the month service for Unite members. The subjects chosen will be very varied and will include politics, sport, social and labour history and economics. There will be a review of each book and details of how readers can obtain copies. View the books reviewed so far

Unite education is also publishing some of its own books on famous figures and successful struggles from the union’s past including Jack Jones, Tom Jones, etc.These all feature as books of the month & have had glowing reviews - read the 'Searchlight' review of these books.

Unite members who would like to see a particular book reviewed - or would like to do a review - should get in touch. If you are a Unite member who has had a book published please also get in touch.

Can you help with new book on THE TRADE UNION CASE?

BOOKS WRITTEN BY UNITE MEMBERS - here you can read reviews of books authored by Unite members past & present.
