HISTORY. "Traces the history of trade unionism throughout the world, from its beginnings in England in the middle of the 18th century to the AFL-CIO merger. It is at once a history of labor organizatio n through the various stages of capitalist development and of socialist society, and a discussion of the problems faced by the workers in their constant struggles to build the labor movement. Foster tells the story for the various coundtries in four major historical periods: competitive capitalism ( 1764-1876), maturing imperialism (1876-1918), the era of capitalist general crisis and the birdth of world socialism (1914-1939) and the period during and after World "War II, when the two world sectors of capitalism and socialism face each other. In his concluding chapers, Foster formulates the general law of tradeunion progress, and discusses questiions like inner trade union democracy and labor unity, the Leftward shift of world labor, and the perspective of socialism.
