From the Folks Who Brought You the Weekend
A Short, Illustrated History of Labor in the United States
by A.B. Chitty
Hailed in a starred Publishers Weekly review as a work of “impressive even-handedness and analytic acuity . . . that gracefully handles a broad range of subject matter,” From the Folks Who Brought You the Weekend is the first comprehensive look at American history through the prism of working people. From indentured servants and slaves in the seventeenth-century Chesapeake to high-tech workers in contemporary Silicon Valley, the book “[puts] a human face on the people, places, events, and social conditions that have shaped the evolution of organized labor” (Library Journal).
