This article comments on issues affecting the outlook for labor history in Great Britain. There have been a close connection which have been made between the break-up of the Soviet Union and the crisis in labor. The author states the necessity to underline the significance of history, partly because there was so much social protest and political radicalism that was forgotten or only incompletely analyzed, and partly because of the general neglect by the historians. The failure to analyze the inter-relationships between the institutions of the state and their impact upon the lives of ordinary people, in their working and social life has for a long time seemed to be a major weakness within the area of historical studies.
