This essay looks at Glasgow's labor situation during World War I and immediately after. It examines the debate over how radical Glaswegians were, and how much influence the Marxist leaders exercised during this period. It uses a vast array of government documents, public documents, and the personal letters and manifestos of the Marxist leaders in order to create a complete picture of this period from all perspectives.
