"This is a well-prepared reference to events in labor history, mostly in the United States and Europe between the years 1800 and 2000...clear and detailed enough to be of help to the student of labor history...this encyclopedia will be most welcome for the excellent coverage and clear presentation of the selected events, and the ease of use that characterizes it."
