Overview

The ten essays in this book explore the intersection of race and class in the study of labor on three continents. Leading scholars examine the way in which working-class identities took shape and changed over time in a variety of settings from the sea ports of southern Africa to the copper mining region of the American southwest. Engaged with debates in current scholarship yet accessible to a general audience, these essays deepen an understanding of the international dimension of labor history.
