The only book of its kind in the field of Afro-American labor studies, this introductory reference surveys the diverse field of Afro-American labor literature from the end of the Civil War to the present. Over ninety percent of the 583 entries have been annotated. Much of the material has been cross-indexed and categorized according to its central focus and approach to the study of Black labor. The bibliography derives its material primarily from books, pamphlets, government documents, dissertations, and privately funded or sponsored studies. Because of the diverse methodological and philosophical approaches to the topic of Black labor, this volume encompasses a variety of related topics, such as employment, legal studies, trade unions, and women.

Editorial Reviews

?This is the most recent in a series of specialized bibliographies in Afro-American studies. The 583 entries, mostly annotated, consist of books, pamphlets, government documents (especially useful early reports), privately funded studies, and collections of papers. The introduction notes the exclusion of journal articles, those sources lacking a specific focus on black workers, or those on employment and occupational categories.... This book will be valuable in large academic and special libraries that support research in this area.?-choice
