America's Great War : World War I and the American experience by Robert H Zieger( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America's Great War provides vivid descriptions of the famous battles, personalities, and diplomatic maneuverings, while it destroys numerous popular myths about America's role in the war. Unlike any historian before him, Zieger details how the war forever altered American politics, culture, and society, and he chronicles America's rise to prominence within the postwar world. Zieger describes how the war was directly responsible for creating the National Security State, for generating powerful new instruments of social control, for bringing about innovative labor and social welfare programs, for expanding the powers of the executive office, and for redefining civil liberties and race relations. Finally, Zieger persuasively argues that World War I created the current global balance of power and established the continuing primacy of globalism in American foreign policy."--Jacket

Republicans and labor, 1919-1929 by Robert H Zieger( Book )

10 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At no other time in American history had labor unrest been more evident than the period immediately after World War I. Robert H. Zeiger here recounts the labor problems that faced the Republican administrations of Presidents Harding and Coolidge -- massive strikes, antiracial hysteria, and the hardening of class attitudes throughout the nation -- and describes the programs and policies of Republican leaders -- particularly those of Herbert Hoover -- to solve them. Zeiger finds that while suspicion and animosity between the Republicans and the union leaders persisted, the rising prosperity of t
For jobs and freedom : race and labor in America since 1865 by Robert H Zieger( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For Jobs and Freedom: Race and Labor in America since 1865 describes the African American struggle to obtain equal rights in the workplace and organized labor's response to their demands. Award-winning historian Robert H. Zieger asserts that the promise of jobs was similar to the forty-acres-and-a-mule restitution pledged to African Americans during the Reconstruction era. The inconsistencies between rhetoric and action encouraged workers, both men and women, to organize themselves into unions to fight against unfair hiring practices and workplace discrimination." "Though racism and unfair hiring practices still exist today, motivated individuals and leaders of the labor movement in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries laid the groundwork for better working conditions and greater employment opportunities. Unions, with some sixteen million members currently in their ranks, continue to protect workers against discrimination in the expanding economy. For Jobs and Freedom is the first authoritative treatment of the race and labor movement in more than two decades, and Zieger's comprehensive study will be standard reading on the subject for years to come."--Jacket

"Highly acclaimed and widely read since its first publication in 1986, American Workers, American Unions provides a concise and compelling history of American workers and their unions in the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first. Taking into account recent important work on the 1970s and the Reagan revolution, the fourth edition newly considers the stagflation issue, the rise of globalization and big box retailing, the failure of Congress to pass legislation supporting the right of public employees to collective bargaining, the defeat in Congress of legislation to revise the National Labor Relations Act, the emasculation of the Humphrey-Hawkins Act, and the changing dynamics of blue-collar politics. In addition to important new information on the 1970s and 1980s, the fourth edition contains a completely new final chapter. Largely written by Timothy J. Minchin, this chapter provides a rare survey of American workers and their unions between 9/11 and the 2012 presidential election. Gilbert J. Gall presents new information on government workers and their recent battles to defend workplace rights. An extensive collection of bibliographical material will be made available online"--
