The World of the Worker

Labor in Twentieth-Century America

The World of the Worker illuminates workers' lives at home, on the job, and in the voting booths. A new preface enhances this social, cultural, and political history: an unparalleled picture of working people during the turbulent rise and fall of the labor movement.

"A fresh and provocative look at twentieth-century American unions, and a fine introduction to recent labor history scholarship." -- Leslie Woodcock Tentler, Washington Post Book World

"Will be welcomed by anyone with a serious interest in labor history." -- Library Journal

"Probably the best social history of twentieth-century labor there is." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Virtually replaces any previously existing one-volume popular history of the labor movement." -- Ron Radosh, Democratic Left
