THE RAGGED TROUSER PHILANTHROPISTS BY ROBERT TRESSELL
THE SOCIALIST UNION BOOK WE SHOULD ALL READ

Synopsis

In writing this book my intention was to present, in the form of an interesting story, a faithful picture of working-class life--more especially of those engaged in the Building trades--in a small town in the south of England.


I wished to describe the relations existing between the workmen and their employers, the attitude and feelings of these two classes towards each other; their circumstances when at work and when out of employment; their pleasures, their intellectual outlook, their religious and political opinions and ideals.
