Labour History in Transition

The Journal

We have just formed a partnership with Liverpool University Press, who will help us to maintain the quality of Labour History and enhance its profile, marketing and audience reach. This will secure the future of the journal for at least the next five years. All editorial arrangements will stay the same, and the cost of individual subscriptions will remain unchanged. One of the reasons we consider Liverpool University Press a suitable home for our journal is its longstanding commitment to the field of labour history. It already publishes a number of titles allied to our own, including Labour History ReviewTheory & Struggle, and Historical Studies in Industrial Relations.

Individual subscribers to the journal will be contacted (by LUP) in the coming months to renew their subscriptions for 2019 (future subscriptions will be collected on a calendar year basis, rather than financial year as is currently the practice). If you are yet to renew for 2017/2018 we would be enormously grateful if you do this as soon as possible.
