dc.descriptionIncludes bibliographical references and index.
dc.description.abstractPresenting ethnographic data and analysis drawn from eight case studies from diverse industries in the United States and abroad, the contributors to The Anthropology of Labor Unions provide a variety of perspectives on this paradox, including discussions of approaches to and findings on the histories, cultures, and practices of organized labor. They also address substantive issues such as race, class, gender, age, generation, ethnicity, health and safety concerns, corporate co-optation of unions, and the cultural context of union-management relationships. "The first to bring together anthropological case studies of labor unions, The Anthropology of Labor Unions will appeal to cultural anthropologists, social scientists, sociologists, and those interested in labor studies and labor movements"--book jacket.
