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.
