This is an auction for THE INCOMING TIDE: SIR WILLIAM SULLIVAN & THE 1951 WATERFRONT DISPUTE, by Marcia Spencer.

"The Incoming Tide combines the suspense of a novel with the skills of a social historian. Why should today's university scholars think that the progress of the Welfare State in the 1940s and 1950s was bland and uneventful, and that living was easy? The political life of Sir William Sullivan has the answers to the attitudes of the day and to the measures taken which were necessary to preserve public welfare. Strikes and stoppages were almost a daily experience. Requests to see reason and for better work and behaviour were ignored and as these were not forthcoming in 1951 due to further holdups and strikes, it seemed that the only thing to do was to force a showdown and clear the troublemakers out."
