The conclusion will draw together the strands developed during the rest of the book. It will assert that historians of post-war Britain should pay closer attention to developments within the workplace and try to see events there as reflective of their own particular social and cultural logics rather than simply mirrors to wider changes in political culture. It will call for more acknowledgement of how what workers did within factories changed British life both at work and beyond. Rather than pathologising industrial relations in this period, we should instead look to understand workplace activism as something that represented a real attempt to assert agency within British life and, consequently, as something that shaped attitudes and behaviours.
