Reference & Research Book News



"A volume in the Major Issues in American History series, this historical survey of key developments in US labor relations begins with the emergence of a labor movement in the 1820s and 1830s and ends with the air traffic controllers' strike in 1981. Following an introductory overview, Beik takes up 11 events as turning points of union development. Some chapters focus on well-known labor disputes, such as the Pullman strike of 1894, the General Motors sit-down strike of 1936-7, and the Memphis sanitation workers' strike in 1968. Other chapters deal with more general topics, including the enactment of the Labor-Management Relations (Taft-Hartley) Act of 1947 and the miner's program of 1919-23. Each chapter consists of a preliminary essay, a set of historical documents, and a selected bibliography of additional readings. A concluding section lists books, Internet sites, and films and videos relevant to industrial relations. Altogether, a good basic introduction to important topics in labor history. Highly recommended. General readers; students, lower-division undergraduate and up; practitioners."
