The Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills strike of 1914-1915 : espionage, labor conflict, and New South industrial relations by Gary M Fink( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year-long strike that followed was singularly well documented, partly by the reports of labor spies paid by management to gather information about striking employees and disrupt union organizing activities. Closely following dramatic confrontations in the northeastern textile industry, the Fulton Bag strike attracted national attention, drawing teams of investigators from the United States Department of Labor and from the United States Commission on Industrial Relations. Their reports are further supplemented by an unusually detailed photographic record, as both sides sought to exploit the camera to win the country's sympathy

Race, class, and community in Southern labor history by Gary M Fink( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the leadership of Gary M Fink and Merl E. Reed, Georgia State University has hosted the Southern Labor Studies Conferences approximately every two years. The conferences have yielded two previous volumes, published in 1977 and 1981, and this volume, which contains selected papers from the seventh conference held in 1991. As evidenced by the quality of these essays, the field of southern labor history has come into its own. Research interest is peaking: the practitioners are younger scholars, and much of their work emphasizes the new social and political history. While the topics covered in this volume usually reflect that methodology, their chronology ranges from the antebellum period to the 1970s, suggesting the variety of sources and changing research approaches that can be used in rendering new meaning to the past. Although the subject of gender was generally a minor theme in these sessions, work now being done leaves no doubt that at some future conference gender will attract a commanding amount of attention. In introducing and describing their respective areas, the associate editors, Robert M. Zieger (textile workers), Joe W. Trotter Jr., (African Americans), and Clifford M. Kuhn (labor politics), have provided a rich historiographical background. The essays in this volume will enlighten the reader on many important aspects of the history of southern labor, and they will also raise new questions to be explained by other scholars and future conferences
