Historical Encyclopedia of American Labor
Edited by Robert E. Weir and James P. Hanlan
This two-volume history of the American labor movement is a tremendous resource, covering the history of organized labor in all of its complexity, from the dawn of the industrial revolution to the "post-industrial age." The A-Z collection has nearly 400 detailed entries covering individual unions, labor leaders, key legislation, major court cases, landmark events, critical terminology, anti-union organizations and much more.
Entries are packed with current information and are clearly written and engaging. Also included are nearly 100 illustrations and 55 primary sources that range from autobiographies to song lyrics and contracts, allowing students to read the actual words of essential documents in American labor history. Entries are extensively cross-referenced and include bibliographies. A detailed index increases your chances of tracking down the exact subject youíre pursuing.
Put together with major support from the nationís labor history community, this encyclopedia would be an invaluable addition to any union or public library collection, or the reference shelf of the serious labor editor, communicator, educator or officer. 730 pages hardcover
