In more than twenty chapters and interludes, American Labor Struggles and Law Histories narrates the collective actions of workers and how those actions intersected with and were impacted by law, courts, and the police, from a slave revolt in 1712 in New York City and the first casualties in the American Revolution to contemporary actions such as supply chain pressures on Walmart. New chapters include tying together the West and East Coast organizing drives of the CIO in 1935, present-day issues affecting Wisconsin public workers, and efforts to resist wage theft.
