Summary:
Labor's Untold Story is, more or less, a history of the American labor movement from the Civil War to the AFL-CIO merger. Per- haps it would be more accurate to say "more and less," for it is both.

Abstract:

Labor's Untold Story is, more or less, a history of the American labor movement from the Civil War to the AFL-CIO merger. Per- haps it would be more accurate to say "more and less," for it is both. Less, because it is not, and does not purport to be, a complete account of labor's struggles in the past century. There is much that is missing, particularly in the history of the AFL. There is nothing of the fight for labor legislation until the campaign for unemployment insurance in the 1930's; there is no account of American labor's international affiliations, or of the socialist movement, or of other important aspects of labor history. But those phases of it that are included are presented well, in an absorbing, journalistic style that carries a dramatic and human impact on every page. At the same time, it is based on thorough research. There are a few careless statements, such as that Gompers in his early days was a Marxist (although he was greatly influenced by them, he was never quite one of them). Another is the assertion that most trade unionists opposed the Spanish-American War; this is almost certainly not correct, and the authors cite only Eugene Debs and Mark Twain to corroborate their conclusion. However, such lapses are few. -- From http://www.jstor.org (Oct. 18, 2016).
