Abstract:

"A decade after its original publication, here is a new edition of The Lexicon of Labor--filled with dozens of fresh and updated terms for a new generation of readers. With descriptions of more than five hundred key places, people, and events in American labor history, this one-of-a-kind reference takes us through the world of work and workers in America. From Frederick Douglass to Cesar Chavez, from the Haymarket Riot in 1886 to the Change to Win federation formed in 2005, this classic labor lexicon provides concise, fascinating sketches of a vital part of the American experience. The Lexicon of Labor is a practical, handy resource for students and journalists, and a perfect introduction to the history of labor in America."
