Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"What this little book does, and does engagingly and perceptively, is to analyze the cyclical fortunes of organized labor... Eminently successful." — History

Book News Annotation:

Zieger (history, U. of Florida) and Gall, a service representative for health care employees, have expanded their account from the 1986 and 1994 editions to cover the entire 20th century. Changes include new chapters on the early decades, World War I, and the last decade; and chapter-specific notes to replace the bibliographic essay. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Highly acclaimed and widely read, American Workers, American Unions (first published in 1986, revised ed. 1994) provides a concise and compelling history of American workers and their unions in twentieth-century America. This new edition features new chapters on the pre--1920 period, as well as an entirely new final chapter that covers developments of the 1980s and 1990s in detail. There the authors explore how economic change, union stagnation, and antilabor policies have combined to erode workers' standards and labor's influence in the political arena over the last two decades. They review current alternatives to unionism as means of achieving fair workplace representations but insist that strong unions remain essential in a democratic society. They argue that labor's new responsiveness to the concerns of women, minority groups, and low-wage workers, as well as its resurgent political activism, offer new hope for trade unionism. Also included in this third edition is new bibliographical material and a regularly updated on-line link to an extended bibliographical essay.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [271]-277) and index.
