These specially commissioned essays by labour historians of international repute provide a complete survey of the global trajectory of labour history. Authoritative and well-researched, these essays consider the early labour history traditions as well as the new conceptions of class, gender, ethnicity, culture, community, and power. The contributors analyse key debates, question dominant paradigms, acknowledge minority critiques, and consider future directions. This book will be of interest to historians of working-class political parties and organizations, to students of trade unions and industrial conflict, and to social scientists interested in social and political protest.
