KIRKUS REVIEW

A thesis for a doctorate, concerned with the development of a pioneer union against the dougle stigma of race and unionism. Here is the factual, legislative, economic history of its growth; the restrictive labor policies of the Pullman Company, the first efforts -- and failures -- of organization; the techniques -- and sources -- of opposition; the legal steps to secure higher wages; the relationship with the AF of L; the government of the Brotherhood; the contractual relations with the Pullman Company. In the growing literature of labor-management relationships, here is another presentation of union organization that shows a union in the process of growing, and shows too an organization that is soundly democratic and businesslike. For a specialized market.
