Description
 
Jacqueline Jones (au). This book travels through 350 years of history to tell the epic, often tragic story of success & failure on the uneven playing fields of American labor. Here is the story of how virtually every significant social transformation in American history (from bound to free labor, from farm work to factory work, from a blue-collar to a white-collar economy) rolled back the hard-won advances of African Americans who had managed to gain footholds in various jobs & industries. Shows how racially divided workplaces developed, & how efforts to gain or preserve group advantages in certain jobs helped to foster racial hatred & contradictory stereotypes. A brilliant indictment.
