fragments of an attempted writing.
For those of you interested in American labor history, I highly advise picking up the last "affordable" copy of the Garland Reference Library of Social Science's Labor Conflict in the United States: An Encyclopedia at Amazon (as of this writing a $15.25 copy here) or the last "affordable" copy at AbeBooks (as of this writing a $9.95 copy here).  Otherwise you are going to pay $40+.  The book is a requirement for those who read a lot of American labor history because when some monograph mentions an old strike or something you can quickly find an overview here.  Otherwise, the history of strikes and direct actions and the persecution of workers seeking to organize is full of some very interesting and quirky stories so this book can make for excellent bathroom reading if nothing else.
