The Pullman Strike and Crisis of 1890s: Essays on Labor and Politics (Working Class in American History) Hardcover – May 12, 1999
"Another fine addition to The Working Class in American History series... All of the essays warrant a close reading by anyone interested in Pullman and the broader history of late-19th and early-20th century America." -- David O. Stowell, Labour History "This is a rich and diverse collection of essays on the decade of the Pullman railroad strike. Symptomatic of the flexible boundaries of the field of labor history, the book unites two studies focusing on organized labor and industrial relations with six essays exploring the strike's broader public context, political ramifications, and intersection with the state." - Georg Leidenberger, H-Labor (H-Net Reviews) "An excellent, wide-ranging anthology of essays by scholars identified with the new labor history." -- Stephen H. Norwood, The Journal of American History "Unlike most academic anthologies, these articles avoid repetition and overlap without abandoning the central story of one of the nation's most engaging industrial conflicts... The 'new' labor historiography displays its wares in this collection of interpretive pieces that uncovers causes and consequences beyond the traditional labor-management dichotomy." -- Scott Molloy, The Historian "These essays will cause whoever writes the next complete account of the Pullman strike to both consider and incorporate a series of new insights." - John H. Keiser, Journal of Illinois History "An admirable addition to the literature." - Perry Duis, Indiana Magazine of History "It is a rare conference volume that is worth the contributors', editors', publisher's, reviewers' and indeed readers' efforts, but this is one such collective enterprise that passes all tests with flying colours... Schneirov, Stromquist and Salvatore, all of whom have written major works dealing with ... this great crisis, have assembled a fine group of collaborators whose contributions focus on the strike's background and consequences rather than on the well-known and dramatic story." -- Howell John Harris, Business History ADVANCE PRAISE "This collection substantially deepens our understanding of the impact of the Pullman strike/boycott and goes a long way toward overcoming the ritual attention it has too long received in the narrative of American labor history."- David Brody, author of Workers in Industrial America: Essays on the Twentieth-Century Struggle
