The Enemy Within. The Effects of Miner's Strike in 1984/85 on the Continuity of the English Working Class
Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,7, Technical University of Chemnitz (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: British Society, Culture and Politics, language: English, abstract: This paper should bring three main topics into accordance because all three, be it Thatcherism, the miners' strike and the working class issue, are mutually dependend from each other. However, the purpose of this paper is not to retell every single event that occured during the progression of the miners' strike or to draw a chronological succession. Instead, it is rather concerned with the examination of the strike's prevailing circumstances. It is going to raise the question inhowfar the existence and the condition of the working class conscience in Britain had changed due to the occurences before, during and after the strike. Hence there will probably be no definite explanation, this term paper should at least try to give an overall view on the reasons for a shift in the British class structure.
