9780252067105: Labor Histories: Class, Politics, and the Working-Class Experience (Working Class in American History)

Is class outmoded as a basis for understanding labor history? This significant new collection emphatically says No! Touching on such subjects as migrant labor, religion, ethnicity, agricultural history, and gender, these thirteen essays by former students of David Montgomery -- a preeminent leader in labor circles as well as in academia -- demonstrate the sheer diversity of the field today.

Review:

"The books well-written, well-researched 13 essays demonstrate that class and political involvement were crucial to the study of working people and to American history itself." -- George Green, Journal of the West "Provides an excellent introduction to the Montgomery-inspired scholarship that has so influenced the field of labor history over the past generation. All of these essays exhibit the extensive archival scholarship and the sympathy with victims of exploitation, racial oppression, and gender discrimination that are the hallmarks of Montgomery's writings and those of his students." -- Robert H. Zieger, Labor History "David Montgomery has been the most important labor historian of our times, not only as a scholar but as a teacher and tribune whose defense of the democratic project stands at the center of his life and work. In this superb collection, thirteen of his students repay their mentor with sparkling essays that not only demonstrate the vast range of his influence but address the new political, cultural, and racial issues that define the axis upon which the study of labor history in the United States now turns." -- Nelson Lichtenstein, author of Walter Ruether: The Most Dangerous Man in Detroit
