Cover for WINSLOW: Waterfront Workers: New Perspectives on Race and Class

Waterfront Workers

New Perspectives on Race and Class

Few work settings can compete with the waterfront for a long, rich history of multi-ethnic and multiracial interaction. Here, five scholars focus on the complex relationships involved in this intersection of race, class, and ethnicity.

"Opens up some of the most significant questions in American labor and social history, including the struggle for control at the workplace and, even more important, the relationship between black and white workers and among various ethnic groups on the docks."
-- David Brundage, author of The Making of Western Labor Radicalism: Denver's Organized Workers, 1878-1905

A volume in the series The Working Class in American History, edited by David Brody, Alice Kessler-Harris, David Montgomery, and Sean Wilentz
