Akron, Ohio, is of special interest in the story of U.S. labor as it has a history of intense struggle, both between Capital and Labor and between conflicting forms of labor organization. This is the only full-length study of labor in Akron from the early 19th century to the end of the Second World War. It is both a narrative history and an examination of why neither a party of labor nor a social union movement took permanent root in the city, despite outbreaks of extraordinary militancy.
