With the annual Strike School rally fast approaching, there couldn’t be a better time to highlight a new book on the rural rebellion and the lives of the Higdons.
Over the decades the story of the Burston School Strike has seeped into wider consciousness to such an extent that even the BBC once made a full length film. But despite of the level of interest in the story there has never been a comprehensive and historically accurate book written on the subject.
That is until now! The Village in Revolt: The Story of the Longest Strike in History has recently been released, and at some 320 pages and 24 illustrations, this history is the most definite work ever produced on the subject.
The book is a fantastic read (is getting some great reviews) and is already available through many bookshops and other online outlets. If you like to support your local independent bookshop, they can order it through the usual industry distribution routes.
