The Industrial Worker, 1840-1860

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Besides the slavery issue, one of the major notes of American life in the years preceding the Civil War was created by the Industrial Revolution. It produced remarkable social and industrial upheavals which were repugnant to an astonishingly large numbers of Americans. Despite national prosperity, industrial workers suffered severe losses of economic status and independence; in protests grounded in religion and politics, they sought to hold on to what they had, and later to win material gains. Mr. Ware s illuminating book analyzes the conditions which brought on the Industrial Revolution, and traces and interprets the labor struggles that developed in response to the factory system.

Synopsis:

"The response of American workers to the advance of the Industrial Revolution, showing how labor suffered severe losses and sought to hold on to its economic status."

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [243]-249) and index.
