?This updated and expanded revision of the Biographical Dictionary of American Labor Leaders, originally published in 1974, is an invaluable reference tool for the serious scholar of labor history. The new volume includes some 50 percent more biographical entries, particularly among women, radical labor figures, and blacks. Moreover, a broad statistical portrait' of labor leaders is provided through a detailed examination of numerous institutional, biographical, social, and political variables for four crucial periods--1900, 1925, 1946, and 1976. This data is amplified by means of several fictionalized representative biographies illustrating the general characteristics of each time period. The bibliography also has been brought up to date. Essential for most academic and research libraries.?-Library Journal
