From the Publisher"As the first collection to bring together anthropological case studies of labor unions, The Anthropology of Labor Unions will hopefully encourage more anthropologists to engage in this important field of study. As a sophisticated treatment of labor and labor unions, this very readable collection will be of interest not only to anthropologists but to historians, sociologists, and all of us interested in labor studies."
—Steve Striffler, Journal of Anthropological Research
"Durrenberger and Reichart produce and idea-rich, pioneering collection on the sociocultural anthropology of unions, certainly citable for years to come. Their book is valuable not just for students of unions but also to those interested in the broader social relations of work influenced and even restrained by the state."
—Frederick C. Gamst, Anthropology of Work Review
