...The Battle for Orgreave is a book about the Orgreave picket and the subsequent trial. Slowly and carefully it goes though the police evidence and reveals a frightening picture of power. But a trial which began as the most important trial of public order this century ended with the complete collapse of the prosecution after 48 days.
The Battle for Orgreave is a personal and political story told through the eyes of one of the defendants. It is about ordinary people fighting for their communities. It shows who and what they have to fight against.
