Editorial Reviews

"A short, readable and insightful summary of the building of Canada's workers' movement."

— The Globe and Mail

"As a work for undergraduate students and a non-academic general readership, the accomplishment that The Canadian Labour Movement represents should be acknowledged. [It is the only book to offer a brief, readable introduction to its subject drawing on the wealth of recent scholarship on Canadian working-class history ...this edition improves on the original and is bound to enjoy a wide readership, particularly in the field of labour studies."

— Social History

"This excellent introduction to the history of Canadian labour is succinct, lucid, and balanced."

— Canadian Book Review Annual
