9780754609070: Jewish Workers and the Labour Movement: A Comparative Study of Amsterdam, London and Paris 1870-1914 (Studies in Labour History)

During the late nineteenth century, many Jewish workers and intellectuals considered their integration into the general labour movement as a good way to counter the double disadvantage they suffered in society as Jews and workers. Whilst in Amsterdam this process encountered few obstacles, it was more problematical in London and Paris. Through a detailed examination of the collaborative efforts of Jewish labour in these three cities, Jewish Workers and the Labour Movement reveals the multi-layered and unique position of Jewish workers in the labour market. It shows how various factors such as economic change, political upheaval, state intervention and anti-Semitism all affected the pace of integration, and draws conclusions that highlight the similarities as well as the differences between the efforts of Jewish workers to improve their lot in France, Britain and Holland.

Review:

'The latest offering in Ashgate's excellent 'Studies in Labour History' series [...] is an important contribution to European labor history... This book succeeds on many levels... a valuable contribution to historical labor literature, a model of good scholarship and a pleasure to read.' Labor History '... this is an important and engaging study... the clarity of purpose displayed and the work's lucid style make for a compelling read. For those business historians with an interest in labour and its organisation, this tale of three cities contains much food for thought.' Business History 'Karin Hofmeester has given us a detailed picture of the social structure, work and play of her three communities. Her conscientious research is commendable.' The London Journal
