Making a New Deal: Industrial Workers in Chicago, 1919-1939 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'This book examines how it was possible and what it meant for ordinary factory workers to become effective unionists and national political participants by the mid-1930s.'

Synopsis:

'Based upon prodigious research, this book carefully assesses the diversity of workers' social experience, examining African-American and Mexican workers as well as eastern and southern Europeans. At every step the argument is developed in a sophisticated way...Making a New Deal constitutes a major achievement and deserves the central position in historians' discussions that it will probably receive.'-Julia Greene in the Journal of American History
