ACADEMIC PRAISE FOR STILL THE ENEMY WITHIN
"Finally, a documentary as sweeping and dramatic as the momentous strike it chronicles…The struggle between Margaret Thatcher and the miners’ resonates down to the present day."
Joseph McCartin, Professor of History, Georgetown University
"A powerful story…Seeing the brutal tactics deployed by the government and how the police and media went along with these crimes shocks the viewer. But the response of the miners will empower anyone who watches the film for the hope of a better future."
Dr. Eric Loomis, Assistant Professor of History, University of Rhode Island
"Moving and powerful, this movie shows how manipulating political power can be but also how passionate and irresistible the struggle for justice is."
Nadia Urbinati, Professor of Political Theory, Columbia University
"Gripping, timely…The miner narrators take us into the fierce heat of the battle and remind us the struggle for good jobs, livable communities, and dignity for all is far from over. This is an inspiring, beautifully-rendered film of resistance that reveals how today's economic and political crises came to be."
Dorothy Sue Cobble, Distinguished Professor of History and Labor Studies, Rutgers University
"Historically, the collective strength of coal miners was one of the engines of 20th century democracy, essential to the British labor movement's influence…Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government understood this and decided to break the union. They succeeded ruthlessly…Three decades later, THE ENEMY WITHIN tells this story vividly and movingly, as men and women from the mining communities recall their involvement against footage and photographs from the time."
Geoff Eley, Professor of Contemporary History, University of Michigan
"Heartbreaking. Infuriating. Necessary. THE ENEMY WITHIN offers a people's history of one of the defining events in modern British history. It should find a place in any course that covers the late-twentieth century."
Guy Ortolano, Associate Professor of History, New York University, Author, The Two Cultures Controversy: Science, Literature, and Cultural Politics in Postwar Britain
