Description

 

    The British labour expert Henry Pelling examines three hundred years of Americans at work. From the days when bonded servants and free craftsmen helped settle the colonies, through the turning point of the post- civil war industrialization, past all the crucial stages of labor unionism up to the 1960's, American workers have been united in a seemingly irresistible quest for 'the American standard of living'.
