Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The contributors to this volume are concerned with the patterns of continuity and change in industrial labor conflicts in major industrialized countries before, during, and in the immediate aftermath of the First World War. The articles have been conceived as part of a series of efforts to assist the further development of comparative labor history, and in particular the application of quantitative techniques to the analysis of industrial labor conflicts in comparative perspective.
