Introduction

Politics and Protest provides students and researchers with a sweeping overview of British political history from the pre-Hansard era to the late-twentieth century. 

Many of the collections cover mainstream parties, including the Labour Party, Independent Labour Party, Social Democratic Party, Liberal Party, Liberal Democrats, and Scottish National Party, while others focus on extremist parties such as the British Union of Fascists

The records also cover extra-parliamentary groups and movements, with the suffragettes, Bryant and May strikers, trade unionists, and conscientious objectors all featured.
