Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This study explores the interaction of the Confédération Générale du Travail (CGT) with the French public sphere, between 1900 and 1920. The CGT supported federalist worker control of industry, and, by World War I, had developed a distinctively productivist discourse, emphasizing increased material output through direction of the economy. Kenneth Tucker examines the triumph of this productivism in contrast with other visions of society and the future, while giving a Habermasian twist to the recent linguistic turn in labor history.

Synopsis:

Kenneth Tucker examines the evolving productivist discourse of the Confédération Générale du Travail at the turn of the century and offers a Habermasian twist to the recent linguistic turn in labor history. His study makes an eloquent case for using history as a cultural resource in confronting our own fin de siècle.

Synopsis:

Combines social (Habermas) and cultural theory with history of major union in early twentieth-century France.
