Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Community and Union Activists in the Industrial Heartland. This book not only helps fill a void in our knowledge of community activism, worker culture, and labor history in the 1930s but also sheds light on the New Deal's domestication of American labor and the channeling of mass protest toward politically and socially acceptable goals. The UAW (United Automobile Workers) acceptance of responsibility for the underclass of the 1930s raises pertinent questions for labor in the 1990s.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p.365-382) and index.
