Riassunto: At the turn of the century, Colorado's Cripple Creek District captured the national imagination with the extraordinary wealth of its gold mines and the unquestionable strength of the militant Western Federation of Miners.In All That Glitters, Elizabeth Jameson tells the better-than-fiction story of Cripple Creek, the scene in 1894 of one of radical labor's most stunning victories and in 1903-4 of one of its most crushing defeats.Jameson's sources include working-class oral histories, the Victor and Cripple Creek Daily Press, published by thirty-four of the local labor unions, and the 1900 manuscript census. She connects unions with lodges and fraternal associations, ethnic identity, families, households, and partisan politics. Through these ties, she probes the differences in age, skill, gender, marital status, and ethnicity that strained working class unity and contributed to the fall of labor in Cripple Creek.Jameson's book will be required reading for western, ethnic, and working-class historians seeking an alternative interpretation of western mining struggles that emphasizes class, gender, and multiple sources of social identity.
About the Author: Elizabeth Jameson holds the Imperial Oil-Lincoln McKay Chair in American Studies at the University of Calgary. She was Co-Chair of the "Unsettled Pasts" conference organizing committee, and served on the Steering Committee of the 1983, 1984, 1987, and 2000 Women's West Conferences. She has published on the histories of western women, western labor, mining, and the Canada-United States borderlands. Her books include two co-edited anthologies (with Susan Armitage), The Women's West and Writing the Range: Race, Class, and Culture in the Women's West, and All That Glitters: Class, Conflict, and Community in Cripple Creek.
