"This is a valuable book and looks upon the issue of trade union history and attempts to organise the working class to be more inclusive...The problem encountered by the Knights of Labour in the book seem to be depressing, but I must add, applicable today...This is a good examination of trade union history and its difficulties in drawing together different races of workers in the same class. It has good relevance and applicability for scholars in the field and as mentioned rather depressingly, these issues remain pertinent even today."
