Editorial Reviews


"It Is Union and Liberty is an essential read for anyone interested in southern and American working class history. The essays in this coherently structured and systematically developed collection span the 20th century. The authors provide important new insights on issues that have dominated studies of labor history in recent years, including interracial unionism, rank-and-file activism, welfare capitalism and industrial paternalism, union democracy, and the role of the state."
—Gary Fink, Georgia State University

"If you work at a non-union mine, you are required to disclaim any connection with any labor organization; you must work for wages and under conditions fixed by the company. In fact, you must do anything that the 'boss' requires of you. He can dock you, he can fine you, he can lay you off, or he can fire you out, and you have no appeal. . . . It is union and liberty, or it is individualism and slavery. "
Birmingham Labor Advocate
