Police strikes have taken place on numerous occasions around the world and the stormy period at the end of the First World War, saw movements amongst police officers in a number of countries, with two of the most dramatic strikes taking place in Britain in 1918 and 1919, being the subject of this book.

Most book-length accounts of this and other police strikes are written by those who view such events as warnings against the moral danger of allowing full democratic rights, of association and to strike, to sections of the state, such as the police, prison officers and the army.

This book takes a different approach. It approaches these events from the position of believing that a different kind of society, is both possible and necessary, a socialist society run in the interests of the 99%. Events that break down the ability of the ruling capitalist class to hamper movements in that direction are welcome and should be learned from.
