Acknowledgements

This book has been made possible by a large community of friends, colleagues, and institutions who provided generous and stimulating support. Together they made my work a delight, and it is a great privilege now to express my thanks.

A number of organizations provided essential financial support for this project, and I am very grateful to all of them: the Josephine De Karman Foundation, the American Historical Association Albert Beveridge Fellowship, the National Endowment for the Humanities, Yale University, the University of Missouri at Kansas City, and the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Archivists and staff members at many institutions worked hard to answer my questions and locate materials for me, and I thank each of them: Library of Congress, National Archives, New York Public Library, Chicago Historical Society, University of Chicago, Yale University Library, Duke University, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Illinois, Illinois State Historical Society, Indiana State Library, the George Meany Archives (AFL-CIO), University of Wisconsin at Madison, California State University at Northridge, University of Missouri at Kansas City, and University of Colorado at Boulder. I am especially grateful to Joe Sullivan at the Library of Congress and to Peter Albert and the late Stuart Kaufman at the Samuel Gompers Papers, University of Maryland.

As a graduate student, I enjoyed working with an inspiring and supportive group of scholars. I learned the craft under the guiding hand of David Montgomery, who brilliantly and compassionately pushed me to refine my analysis. His written comments on dissertation chapters continue to shape my thinking even now. David Brion Davis provided a model of intellectual scholarship, kindly took an interest in a subject far from his own specialty, and helped streng-then both my argument and my writing. David Plotke shared with me his expertise in political science, helping to discipline and focus my ideas. Several other scholars generously shared their ideas and approaches with me: My thanks to John Agnew, Nancy Cott, and especially to Terrence McDonald. In my earliest days as a student of history, I learned to appreciate the discipline from three historians
