“Building Jerusalem: The General Strike as Social Drama” details how the 1926 General Strike functioned as the watershed event for Labour and union politics in the first half of the twentieth century. Oral history narratives, archival sources, and history texts provide the sources for presenting the events that led up to the strike. This chapter also delineates the structural components--the roles, costumes, dramatic activities, festival license, and special settings--that enabled the volunteers and the media to contextualize the strike as a festive social drama.
