All Ten Volumes of
Foner's Labor Movement
All ten volumes of The History of the
Labor Movement of the United States by the late Philip S. Foner are again in
print. This impressive series examines the history of U.S. trade unionism in remarkable
detail, from the colonial era to the eve of the Great Depression.
For example, Volume One examines labor in colonial times and in the
American Revolution, early trade unions and labor parties, the 10-hour movement, labor and
the Civil War, the rise of the Knights of Labor and the depression of 1873-78.
The founding of the American Federation of Labor, the Spanish-American
War, Haymarket and the 8-hour day struggle and the Homestead and Pullman strikes are
considered in Volume Two. Volume Four offers one of the best available studies of the
Industrial Workers of the World, the Wobblies, from 1905-1917.
The series ends with a consideration of the late 1920s, including the
Sacco-Vanzetti frame-up, miners struggles and the work of the Trade Union Education
