Grunwick: The Workers Story. by Jack & Graham TAYLOR.

Jack Dromey and Graham Taylor, Grunwick: the workers’ story, 2nd ed. (Lawrence and Wishart in association with the GMB Union, 2016), vi, 212pp. Although this book is sub-titled The Workers’ Story, it could equally well be flagged as ‘a socialist and trades unionist primer’

Jack Dromey and Graham Taylor, Grunwick: the workers’ story, 2nd ed. Although this book is sub-titled The Workers’ Story, it could equally well be flagged as ‘a socialist and trades unionist primer’. The story of a strike, ending in failure, by a small group of immigrant workers, mainly female, for union recognition and respect at a small photographic processing plant in North London would in the normal run of events, seem to merit little more than a footnote in any trade-union history of twentieth-century Britain.

So what is the story of the "strikers in saris"? . Special Branch even had files on the Grunwick strikers and some of their supporters, including Jack Dromey MP, who was at the time the secretary of Brent Trades Council.

So what is the story of the "strikers in saris"? It is a story not just of a groundbreaking movement, but of an extraordinary woman - Jayaben Desai. He said that the lasting legacy of the strikes was the example set by Mrs Desai.

Jack Dromey is the MP for Birmingham Erdington.

But stories never end, do they? Not really. There will be a sequel to The Rotters’ Club, entitled The Closed Circle, resuming the story in the late 1990s. The following books proved informative, helpful or inspiring in writing this novel: Chris Upton, A History of Birmingham (Phillimore, 1993); Chris Mullin, Error of Judgment: The Truth about the Birmingham Pub Bombings (Poolbeg Press, 1997); Peter L. Edmead, The Divisive Decade: A History of Caribbean Immigration to Birmingham in the 1950s (Birmingham Library Services, 1999); Martin.

John Eugene Joseph Dromey (born 29 September 1948) is a British Labour Party politician and trade unionist. He has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Birmingham Erdington since the 2010 general election and was appointed Shadow Minister for Communities and Local Government in the Ed Miliband shadow front bench. He became Shadow Policing Minister in 2013, but resigned from this position on 27 June 2016

Graham Taylor and Jack Dromey celebrated the contribution of Asian workers in their book, Grunwick: the Workers' Story.

Graham Taylor and Jack Dromey celebrated the contribution of Asian workers in their book, Grunwick: the Workers' Story. Of course, Chen is right to ensure this contribution is not "whitewashed" out of our history books, but she needs to address her remarks to Michael Gove perhaps rather than the left. Anna Chen is right to point to the strong anti-racist record of the British working class in the post-45 era, from anti-apartheid to Grunwick

A classic analysis book for you if you are interested in function spaces, analysis etc.
good book
This is a classical and nice book. Amazon service was pretty nice and shipped in time.
The theory of Hardy spaces is vast, along with its applications. This book overviews what was known about them in the early 1960s. In spite of its age, it can still be read profitably by anyone interested in harmonic analysis and Hardy spaces.
Chapter 1 gives a quick review of the mathematical background needed for reading the rest of the book, mostly dealing with measure theory, and Banach and Hilbert spaces.
In chapter 2, the author gives a detailed treatment of Fourier series over the closed interval from -pi to pi. The chapter is designed to answer two questions, namely whether a function is determined by its Fourier series, and given a particular Fourier series, how one can recapture the function. These questions must be addressed in the appropriate norm on the Banach space of Lp spaces of Lebesgue integrable functions. There are many methods of recapturing the function, and the author discusses a few such methods, one being the Cesaro means. The authors proves that for a function in Lp, the Cesaro means of the Fourier series of the function converge to it in the Lp norm (when p is greater than or equal to 1 but less than infinity). When p is infinity, the author shows this is true in the weak-star topology. The author then shows how the Cesaro means can be used to characterize the different types of Fourier series.
Analytic and harmonic functions in the unit disk are defined and studied in chapter 3. The first question the author addresses is to what extent these functions are determined by their boundary values. The author shows how to represent these functions on the closed unit disk using the Cauchy and Poisson integral formulas, thus answering this question. The second question he addresses is the behavior of these functions on the boundary, i.e. the Dirichlet problem. His methods for harmonic functions are analagous to those for Lp under the guise of Cesaro means, i.e. Cesaro summability becomes Abel summability. The author shows this connection more rigorously by proving Fatou's theorem. Hp spaces are defined in this chapter, and the author illustrates one of the major differences between the harmonic and analytic functions.
The author begins the study of H1 spaces in chapter 4, initially via the Helson-Lowdenslager approach. He first proves Fejer's theorem for functions which are continuous on the closed unit disk and analytic at each interior point: the real parts of these functions are uniformly dense in the space of real-valued continuous functions on the unit circle. Szego's theorem, which gives a measure of the "distance" from the constant function 1 to the subspace of these functions that vanish at the origin, is proved, as well as the Riesz theorem, which shows that analytic measures on the unit circle are absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure. He then applies these results to H1 functions, showing that such functions cannot vanish on a set of positive Lebesgue measure on the circle without being identically zero. The author then generalizes these results to Dirichlet algebras later in the chapter, showing to what extent the Riesz theorem carries over.
The important factorization theorems for Hp functions are covered in chapter 5, wherein the famous Blaschke products come in. Their properties are discussed in detail, along with the ability to represent a non-zero bounded analytic function in the unit disk in terms of them. The author proves a theorem of Hardy and Littlewood on H1 functions of bounded variation and a theorem of Hardy on the growth of the Fourier coefficients of an H1 functions.
The author studies the algebra A of continuous functions on the closed unit disk which are analytic on the open disk in chapter 6. The factorization results of chapter 5 are used along with the theory of commutative Banach algebras to characterize completely the closed ideals in A. Wermer's maximality theorem, which states that A is a maximal closed subalgebra of the continuous complex-valued functions on the unit circle, is proven.
The shift operator on the (Hilbert) space H2 is studied in chapter 7, the goal being to classify the invariant subspaces of this operator. The author uses a more classical approach due to Helson and Lowdenslager to do this. The shift operator on L2 (on the unit circle) is then considered, and its invariant subspaces described. The author finishes the chapter with a short discussion of the representations of H(infinity).
After a study of Hp spaces on the half-plane in chapter 8, in chapters 9 and 10 the author predominantly looks at Hp and H(infinity) from a "soft" analysis point of view. He shows that the isometries of H1, induced by conformal mappings of the unit disk onto itself, can be studied by studying the isometries of H(infinity). The projections from Lp to Hp are discussed, the author providing readers the necessary background for a study of Toeplitz operators, if they so desire. The topology of the maximal ideal space of H(infinity) is considered, but at the time of publication it was not known whether or not the open unit disk is dense in this space. This is the famous corona theorem of Lennart Carleson, which he proved as this book went into publication.
"Polish" spaces are what follows Hilbert spaces, as night follows day. In a world where fractals and their functional analysis are everywhere, Banach spaces are necessary. Several years ago I reinvented Banach space in my ignorance while studying fractal theory. A book that is both cheap and gives a running shot at learning about this complex graduate level subject is important! I won't say this is an easy book, but for the price it is well worth it as a doorway to a new world of analytical function theory.
the book is a cornerstone of any serious inquiry in Hardy spaces and the invariant subspace problem; it is also hightly readable and well written. people interested in a second course on complex functions, harmonic analysis and functional analysis (banach and hilbert spaces) should have a look at it; it deserves it and the reader will be richly rewarded...
Very well written book on Banach spaces and their
many applications in mathematics. Highly recommended
for graduate students working in the areas of pure
