Summary
A comprehensive look at the history of the United States through the prism of working people. In this fully updated new edition, the authors have added a wealth of fresh analysis of labor's role in American life, and three entirely new chapters on global labor developments, worker activism in immigrant communities, and the 2016 election and unions' relationships to Trump. -- Adapted from back cover
