La Historia Desconocida del Movimiento Obrero de los Estados Unidos
Now back in print (its 29th printing) and available for only $15 — the adventure story of the battles, betrayals and victories of American working men and women.
The adventure story of the battles, betrayals and victories of American working men and women. Extensively researched, yet highly readable, history of the U.S. labor movement from the Civil War through the Eisenhower Administration. Widely regarded as a classic study since it was first published in 1955, the book documents labor-management conflict from the workers’ perspective. Topics range from William Silvis’s attempts to admit women and blacks into the labor movement; the first nationwide strike; the Justice Department’s use of “red scare” tactics to break the great steel strike of 1919, to the “eclipse” of Joseph McCarthy.
