Sidney Pollard

Sidney Pollard was a pioneering labour historian who influenced the gret luminaries in the field, E.P. Thompson and E.J. Hobsbawm. Almost single-handedly, he pioneered the study of eceonomic management in history and the understanding of the economic processes by which regions are formed. As a labour historian, his contribution to the study of the marginalized in society was original and vital. His history was intimately connected with his personal life - from escape to Britain from Nazi-occupied Vienna on the Jewish kindertransporte, to work in Britain, the USA, Israel and apartheid South Africa.
