Wisconsin's workers and their leaders have always been in the vanguard of those concerned with social justice, fair labor practices, humane working conditions, and political equality. Professor Ozanne's book, based upon years of research in newspapers, manuscripts, and the archives of both labor and management, provides a broad overview of an important chapter in Wisconsin history.

Robert W. Ozanne was a professor of economics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where he taught American labor history for more than 25 years. He grew up in Neenah, Wisconsin and and went on to be the director of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's School for Workers program before he joined the Department of Economics.

"All those who desire to know how the labor movement in Wisconsin grew and changed will find [Ozanne's] history an indispensable reference." -Melvyn Dubofsky, State University of New York at Binghamton

"The reissuance of the book now makes for an excellent reminder of the role labor played in the evolution of Wisconsin government, and it underscores the many contributions that labor made to the building of America's middle class, benefiting not just union members, but all workers." Dave Zweifel, "The Capital Times"
