About the Book

Looking around him in 1906, Samuel Gompers saw a labor movement beset by opponents who, he said, "represent neither conscience nor humanity, but rather greed and avarice." This installment in the multivolume documentary history of the nation's premier labor leader spotlights a pivotal period in the AFL's development.

"The editors have done their job well, succeeding admirably in their aim of presenting a multidimensional portrait of Gompers and his era."
-- Bernard Elbaum, Journal of Economic History

"A distinguished and invaluable collection." -- Bruce Laurie, Industrial and Labor Relations Review
