Editorial Reviews

A collection of Buhle's essays bringing together his labor and cultural studies into one narrative. Buhle's retrospective commentary ranges across the history of the US labor movement's struggles and ultimate failures, and documents the author's own evolving interests in cultural consideration not defined simply by "class," such as the impact of gender and race on labor trends. The former editor of "Radical America" provides an important and often neglected perspective of American politics with both intelligence and humor, proving that class conflict "does" resonate with Mark Twain. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
