Focusing on the operation and influence of the Knights of Labor --- the leading labor organization of the nineteenth century --- Workingmen's Democracy explores the dreams, achievements, and failures of a movement that sought to renew the democratic potential of American institutions.
"The pick of a growing crop of studies on the American working class." -- The Nation
"An important work, the best of several recent volumes on the Knights." -- American Historical Review

Industry Reviews

@FINKWorkingmen's Democracy@"Concentrating on the historic failure of the American working class to build an effective anti-capitalist political party, observers on the left have tended to judge the American labor movement harshly in comparison to its European counterparts. Fink's important book reminds us that this has not always been so." -- In These Times.
