People Power: Fighting for Peace From the First World War to the Present - Lyn Smith

£20.00 — On sale

People Power charts the history of the anti-war movement in the UK from the outbreak of the First World War to present-day conflicts in the Middle East, and tells the story of conscientious objectors and others who have been engaged in protest over the past century.

Drawing on testimonies from the Imperial War Museum’s vast collection, and its rich archive of visual material, including photographs, paintings, posters, cartoons and badges, the book explores the wide-ranging reasons for opposing war and examines the changes and continuity in the movement as the nature of conflict has evolved from trench warfare to nuclear weapons. The role of key organizations and groups within the movement is examined, such as the Peace Pledge Union in the 1930s and Stop the War Coalition in the modern era, as well as that of high-profile individual campaigners, including Fenner Brockway and Tony Benn.
