Workers on the Waterfront

Seamen, Longshoremen, and Unionism in the 1930s
Awards and Recognition:

Winner of the Frederick Jackson Turner Award of the Organization of American Historians, 1989.

"A fascinating story that holds the reader's interest from beginning to end. It is well written and thoroughly researched, and makes a real contribution to American labor history."
-- Journal of Economic History

"Nelson has, to my mind, written the definitive account of one of the most dramatic episodes in American labor history. It should appeal to a wide audience: not only to students of the labor movement but also to those interested in questions of class consciousness, working-class radicalism, and American communism."
-- Contemporary Sociology
