ABOUT THE BOOK:
Why is there no independent labor party in the United States? While many would assert “American exceptionalist” arguments, which point to lackluster class-consciousness among American workers as the problem, Moody uses archival research to argue that despite divisions, workers in the Gilded Age had strong traditions of class consciousness and political radicalism. He contends that internal migration during the late 1800’s created instability in organizations of workers and that over time, this has undermined the ability to build an independent labor political party.
