Shifting Fortunes: The Rise and Decline of American Labor, from the 1820s to the Presentby Daniel Nelson
In this illuminating survey of American labor from the 1820s to the present, Daniel Nelson looks for the reasons why union activity has ebbed and flowed since the onset of the Industrial Revolution. Rather than simply summarizing other people's books, Mr. Neson offers an original and provocative view of the union experience in America.
