Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'This book offers the most sweeping portrait of working-class life yet to emerge from the new labor history. It is a subtle, complex, often brilliant study, which demonstrates how far labor scholarship has moved in a generation.' --Alan Brinkley, New Republic

Synopsis:

This book studies the changing ways in which American industrial workers mobilised concerted action in their own interests between the abolition of slavery and the end of open immigration from Europe and Asia. Sustained class conflict between 1916 and 1922 reshaped governmental and business policies, but left labour largely unorganised and in retreat. The House of Labor, so arduously erected by working-class activists during the preceeding generation, did not collapse, but ossified, so that when labour activism was reinvigorated after 1933, the movement split in two.
