Product Description


"As a work for undergraduate students and a non-academic general readership, the accomplishment that The Canadian Labour Movement represents should be acknowledged. [It] is the only book to offer a brief, readable introduction to its subject drawing on the wealth of recent scholarship on Canadian working-class history ...this edition improves on the original and is bound to enjoy a wide readership, particularly in the field of labour studies." (David Camfield Social History)

"This excellent introduction to the history of Canadian labour is succinct, lucid, and balanced." (David Bennett Canadian Book Review Annual)

"A short, readable and insightful summary of the building of Canada's workers' movement." (The Globe and Mail)
