Synopsis

In this book, Dr. Perchard attempts to redress the exclusion of colliery managers and other mining professionals from the history of British, and particularly Scottish, coal industries by examining these groups within the most crucial period of their ascendancy, 1930-1966, in the Scottish coal mining industry. This work seeks to place such persons within their context and to examine their roles, statuses and behaviours through their relationships with employees and the execution of their functions, also examining their terms and conditions of employment, the outlook of their professional associations, and that of their union. Through all this, Dr. Perchard illustrates how this growing consciousness amongst managerial employees in the industry was accompanied by an intense public discussion, within the mining professions, over their future shape, principles and occupational standards.
