(no dust jacket) [light shelfwear, slight bumping to bottom corners, gilt spine lettering somewhat dulled but completely readable; binding firm, no markings in text]. (B&W photographs) From the introduction: "Most books on labor preoblems discuss broad national movements and issues but do not touch the living, breathing, local units which are the basic realities. In short, most such books seem unable to see the trees because of the forest. Mr. Carsel's book tells the interesting story of the men and women who during the last half century have made women's clothing in Chicago, and of their struggles to establish a greater degree of industrial democracy." Appendices; Notes; Glossary; Bibliography; Index. Ten photographic plates, including portraits of Morris Bialis, M.A. Goldstein, and David Dubinsky.
