from the nineteenth century to the present Paul D. Moreno offers a bold reinterpretation - truly a new history - of the role of race and racial discrimination in the American labor movement. Breaking with historians deadlocked debate over the importance of race in labor organizations, Moreno applies insights of the law-and-economics movement to formulate a powerfully compelling labor-race theorem of elegant simplicity: White unionists found that race was a convenient basis on which to do what unions do - control the labor supply.

Not racism pure and simple but the economics of discrimination explains historic black absence and under-representation in unions. Morenos sweeping reexamination stretches from the antebellum period to the present, integrating relevant biographical details of principal figures such as Frederick Douglass and Samuel Gompers.
