Texas Labor History

Synopsis

A helpful new source for scholars and teachers who wish to fill in some of the missing pieces.
Tackling a number of such presumptions--that a viable labor movement never existed in the Lone Star State; that black, brown, and white laborers, both male and female, were unable to achieve even short-term solidarity; that labor unions in Texas were ineffective because of laborers' inability to confront employers--the editors and contributors to this volume lay the foundation for establishing the importance of labor to a fuller understanding of Texas history.
