This chapter examines the work of George Garrett, which provides significant insights about left-wing politics, labour history on Merseyside, the stylistics of resistance writing, and tactics for overcoming the implicit class hierarchies that lie within conventional literary forms. Garrett's work also contains fascinating details concerning the interaction between British and American left-wing organizations during the 1920s and 30s. The chapter examines the ways in which Garrett's life and writing were influenced by one of the most famous of all American labour movements: the Industrial Workers of the World.

Keywords:   left-wing politics, labour history, resistance writing, class hierarchies, left-wing organization, labour movements, Industrial Workers
