Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0313228345, Hardcover)
An indispensable work for any collection on Latin America, Greenfield and Maram, both professional Latin American historians, have performed a remarkable service for scholars, journalists, students, and the interested lay public. . . . The focus of the individual chapters is on labor organizations, and the information assembled on the various unions, cooperatives, sindicatos, and mutual aid societies is invaluable. . . . The index, itself 98 pages, makes the book even more valuable for the casual or serious researcher. As a resource tool, this volume cannot be too highly recommended. Choice
Each chapter concentrates on the history of labor organizations of a single nation. Chapters begin with general essays that place the labor movement within the context of a country's historical and socio-political development. Entries on each of the nation's most important labor organizations follow, including discussion of origin, development, and activities. A bibliography containing suggestions for further study completes each chapter. Appendices include information on international labor organizations that have played an important role in Latin America, country-by-country time lines focusing on the development of organized labor, and a select glossary of terms and notable people.
