Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is a concise yet wide-ranging and accessible synthesis of the experience of southern workers between World War II and the present.: inking his discussion to important debates in the field of southern history today, Timothy Minchin brings the story of southern labor up to date: and places the workers' own experiences in the forefront. He considers the central question of whether the modem South is till distinctive, arguing that the region's lower wages, lower rates of unioization, and legacy of racial segregation continue to set it apart. He stresses that southern workers have a rich history of labor activism, despite the face that establishing lasting unionism in the region has been difficult. Drawing on a broad knowledge of primary sources and his own extensive archive of more than 200 interviews with southern workers, Minchin offers an overview of the past 70 years of southern labor history in combination with a lively and intimate sense of the human experience. His oral histories include men and women, both black and white, who offer their insights not just on the workplace but also on their living conditions, political activities, and race relations. The book explores the experience of recent Latino migrants to the South and covers topical issues such as the decline of the textile industry, the catastrophic 1991 fire at a chicken-processing plant in North Carolina that killed 25 workers, and high-profile union efforts to organize Nissan's large factory in Smyrna Tennessee.

Riassunto:

This is a concise yet wide-ranging and accessible synthesis of the experience of southern workers between World War II and the present, and it links its discussion to important debates in the field of southern history today.

Timothy Minchin brings the story of southern labor up to date and places the workers' own experiences in the forefront of his account. He considers the central question of whether the modern South is still distinctive, arguing that the region's lower wages, lower rates of unionization, and legacy of racial segregation continue to set it apart. He stresses that southern workers have a rich history of labor activism, despite the fact that establishing lasting unionism in the region has been difficult. Drawing on a broad knowledge of primary sources and his own extensive archive of more than 200 interviews with southern workers, Minchin offers an overview of the past 70 years of southern labor history in combination with a lively and intimate sense of the human experience of the period. His oral histories include the voices of men and women, both black and white, and offer their insights not just on the workplace but also on their living conditions, political activities, and race relations. The book explores the experience of recent Latino migrants to the south and covers topical issues such as the decline of the textile industry, the catastrophic 1991 fire at a chicken-processing plant in North Carolina that killed 25 workers, and high-profile union efforts to organize Nissan's large factory in Smyrna, Tennessee. It also looks at patterns of economic change in the 20th-century South, such as the rise of the Sunbelt and the shift to a service-based economy. For all historians, students, and general readers interested in contemporary American events, this work offers a readable and much needed discussion of the field of modern southern labor history.    

Book Description: “A long overdue survey of southern U.S. labor history since WWII. Based on an extensive reading of primary and secondary sources, this book is an important starting point for understanding post-WW II labor issues. Highly recommended.”—CHOICE   “Brings new scholarship to bear on . . . postwar southern labor history.”—Journal of American History   "The definitive synthesis of two decades of scholarship on southern labor history. . . . [It] also lets southerners speak for themselves. The result is a testament to the indomitable human spirit of working men and women in a region often hostile to their aspirations."--Alex Lichtenstein, Rice University   This is a concise yet wide-ranging and accessible synthesis of the experience of southern workers between World War II and the present, and it links its discussion to important debates in the field of southern history today. Timothy Minchin brings the story of southern labor up to date and places the workers' own experiences in the forefront of his account.
