Write The First Customer Review

This finely detailed narrative is the definitive account of the rise to power of the Chicago labor movement amidst the 1877 railroad strike, the 1886 struggle over the eight-hour workday, and the 1894 Pullman strike. Hinging on a major reinterpretation of the Haymarket era, LABOR AND URBAN POLITICS argues for labor's profound influence on the shaping of urban politics and the transformation of liberalism in late 19th-century America.
