Part two of Philip Foner's lengthy history of the labor movement in the United States. This volume covers 1880 to 1900 or so and documents many issues across the labor movement, but in particular it is focused on the decline of the Knights of Labor and the rise of the American Federation of Labor (AFL). Foner is a critic of both the AFL and K of L who he believes were not vigorous enough in their support for a militant movement, and too eager to make peace with industry. Other books in the series.

In 1947, the first volume of my History of the Labor Movement in the United States was published. It covered the period from colonial times to the founding of the American Federation of Labor which dates its inception from 1881, the year the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions was formed. The present volume carries the story from 1881 to the close of the nineteenth century. But none of the books covering these decades, including the monumental work by John R. Commons and his associates at the University of Wisconsin, were based on the source material in the archives of the American Federation of Labor.

This is the knowledge that has been deliberately kept from the public to willingly enslave us to the 1%. The real history of what made America a decent place to live in.

Foner's work is standard for labor historians, but all should read more labor history, especially members of the American working class who are notoriously ignorant of their nation's labor history.

If you'e a working class person and you haven't read labor history, consider yourself to be woefully uneducated.

Once you have read some of the history of the American working class, never again will you be able to stomach the corporate version of American life offered up by the likes of Fox News, as so many of the American working class today seem woefully willing to do.

American these days are always BLAMING organized labor for things that they dont understand.
The fact is that in the history of organized labor heroic men and women have DIED to gain the things we take for granted: the 8 hour workday, overtime, safe working conditions, equal pay, health and pension plans...
Only when You read this history will You began to understand the history of organized labor in the United States and how organized labor has been systematically supressed to benefit the Ruling Class Plutocrats and Oligarchs who control this country.

This is the second of his history that I have read.
I am on my 4th volume now.

This the second in the series.
As all the others, it is detailed, researched and footnoted in much detail.
His books have led me to many others.

He has a very interesting history of his own.

If you are interested in American Organized labor history: perhaps the most gallant and most under-appreciated genre's of ALL American history, this is great American history

As a Union organizer in the 1970's in the Appalachian Mountains, I carried two of Philip S. Foner's works. These are fabulous collections for home and library.

Philip S. Foner picks up from his "History of the Labor Movement in the United States, Vol. 1: From Colonial Times to the Founding of the American Federation of Labor".

Vol. 2 is 439 pages, and concentrates on the years 1881-1900. It deals with Knights of Labor (founded in 1869) and American Federation of Labor (founded in 1886). Mentions why the Knights of Labor lost its membership. The book also deals with a few important strikes of the era, a few pages of American Imperialism (Spanish–American War 1898), and plenty of other info.

Again, this is a stupendous and vastly interesting work.

Highly recommended.
