About this title

Review:

"Kazin's book is about far more than the construction industry: it also illuminates the social and political history of San Francisco... Gracefully written and adorned with evocative portraits of local political and labor leaders, Barons of Labor is absorbing reading as well as a fine piece of history." The Nation "A bold and pioneering work that revises our understanding of skilled craftsmen and the politics of class in the Progressive Era." Journal of American History "Barons of Labor, is superb work, carefully researched and written with clarity, vitality, and wit, a pleasure as well as an education to read." Labor History
