Teaching Labor History?

If you want your students to be inspired by learning about the radical ideas in labor history's past, take a look at Work and Struggle, which Elaine Bernard, Executive Director of the Labor and Worklife Program at Harvard Law School called, "required reading for anyone interested in how movements might develop in our own radical times."

Showcasing some of labor's most important leaders, Work and Struggle offers students and instructors a variety of voices to learn from -- each telling their story through their own words -- through writings, memoirs and speeches, transcribed and introduced here by Paul Le Blanc.
