Communist Women in Scotland : Red Clydeside from the Russian Revolution to the End of the Soviet Union. During the first half of the twentieth century, Glasgow was witness to an unparalleled wave of working class protest and political agitation.

During the first half of the twentieth century, Glasgow was witness to an unparalleled wave of working class protest and political agitation. The protesters challenged the capitalist social order and also, on occasion, the state itself. What was the legacy of this turbulence and upheaval which reinforced Glasgow's reputation as the center of working class struggle in Britain?

In this original and meticulously researched analysis, Neil Rafeek makes the first systematic study of ""Red Clydeside,"" the term given to Communism, radical Labor and trade Unionism in Scotland, a legendary phenomenon in British and even international labor history. He focuses on the role of women in the Communist Party and describes women’s experiences of meeting leading international personalities of the era: Khrushchev, Gagarin, Tereshkova, Castro and the Ceauescus. Using rich and evocative personal testimony blended with the author’s own analysis, Rafeek shows the idealistic socialist motivation behind the establishment of ""Red Clydeside"" and the subsequent growing strains and discord in Communism and the labor movement generally, internationally and in Scotland.
