Neville Kirk


This cross-national comparative labor history examines the movement's attitudes toward class, race, and politics in Britain, Australia, and the United States during the era of New Imperialism, 1880-1914. Teasing out similarities and considering peculiarities among nations, this research explores contemporary implications and addresses the role of labor in today's globalized world. Primary sources complement the comparative geographical focus.
