A deeply researched account of labor in America

A BROAD VIEW OF PEOPLE AT WORK

FROM THE FOLKS WHO BROUGHT YOU THE WEEKEND: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF LABOR IN THE UNITED STATES, REVISED AND UPDATED BY PRISCILLA MUROLO AND A. B. CHITTY (2018) 416 PAGES ★★★☆☆

American history textbooks mention a handful of iconic clashes between labor and management, such as the Ludlow Massacre at John D Rockefeller Jr’s Colorado Fuel and Iron Company in 1914. The aftermath is shown here, following the murder of 25 people, including miners’ wives and children, by the Colorado National Guard and private guards employed by Rockefeller. But there were innumerable such incidents beginning in colonial times that are almost never mentioned in general histories of the country. Image: Britannica
