A Short History of the U.S. Working Class: From Colonial Times to the Twenty-First Century (Revolutionary Studies) by Paul Le Blanc

Noting that standard accounts of US history often pay little attention to the working class, labour historian Paul Le Blanc presents a colourful, fact-filled history that concentrates on the struggles and achievements of that often neglected labouring majority. In a blend of economic, social, and political history, Le Blanc shows how important labour issues have been and continue to be in the forging of our nations history. Within a broad analytical framework he highlights issues of class, gender, race, and ethnicity, and includes the views of key figures of US labour -- Cesar Chavez, Eugene V Debs, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Samuel Gompers, Woody Guthrie, Big Bill Haywood, Langston Hughes, Mother Mary Jones, Martin Luther King Jr., George Meany, A. Philip Randolph, and Carl Sandburg, among others. In addition to the main narrative, a bibliographical essay directs readers to classic works and cutting-edge scholarship in the field of US labour history as well as to relevant fiction, poetry, and films for further exploration or study. The books substantial glossary offers clear definitions and thought-provoking mini-essays for almost 200 terms, from the most basic to the most complex and technical.
