ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
      Few work settings can compete with the waterfront for a long, rich history
        of multi-ethnic and multiracial interaction. Here, five scholars focus
        on the complex relationships involved in this intersection of race, class,
        and ethnicity.
      "Opens up some of the most significant questions in American labor
        and social history, including the struggle for control at the workplace
        and, even more important, the relationship between black and white workers
        and among various ethnic groups on the docks." -- David Brundage,
        author of The Making of Western Labor Radicalism: Denver's Organized
        Workers, 1878-1905
      A volume in the series The Working Class in American History, edited
        by David Brody, Alice Kessler-Harris, David Montgomery, and Sean Wilentz
