About the Author:

Leon Fink is professor of history and director of the Work, Race, and Gender in the Urban World graduate program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His most recent book is "Progressive Intellectuals and the Dilemmas of Democratic Commitment".

From Library Journal:

Fink (history, Univ. of North Carolina) evaluates American labor history in the broader context of 19th- and 20th-century political and social developments from the vantage point of the generation of labor historians who came of age in the 1960s. These nine essays are mostly extended studies of the political, legal, economic, and social foundations of the struggles of American workers and their labor unions for power; the centrality of class conflict in American labor history; and the tensions between workers as historical subjects and historians as outside observers. The writing is dense and often turgid. Suitable for academic libraries with large labor collections.
Harry Frumerman, formerly with Hunter Coll.
