in Disability in industrial Britain

The Conclusion brings together the strands of the book in the context of an industry which continues to leave a legacy of ill-health, impairment and chronic sickness even after the last deep coal mine in Britain has closed. It argues for a perspective which respects the agency of disabled miners and their families, challenging theoretical structures and industrial historiographies which have left little room for the lived experiences of disabled miners and their families, or the fact that – far from being automatically excluded from the workplace – they were central to the social and economic landscape of the coalfields.
