Special Offer to Union Members —
All Ten Volumes of
Foner's Labor Movement
History Available

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 League.

Recognizing that The History of the Labor Movement of the United States is an important educational tool to help a new generation learn from labor’s past struggles, International Publishers is offering the entire set to union members for $85, shipping included. (If purchased separately, the series would cost $102.85, plus shipping.) Individual volumes may also be purchased separately; prices vary. (New York residents will have to pay sales tax.)

To place an order, or for more information, contact International Publishers at 239 West 23 St., New York, NY 10011, 212 366-9816 (telephone), 212 366-9820 (fax) or (email).
