Race, Class, and Power

purchase at bookshop.org In their new edited volume Reconsidering Southern Labor History: Race, Class, and Power (University Press of Florida, 2018), Keri Leigh Merritt and Matthew Hild provide an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the historical development of southern labor. The essays in this volume demonstrate that the "southern working class"--far from being a kind of white, Trump-supporting monolith--is actually a complicated beast.
