Our Own Time provides the first full account of the movement to shorten the working day in the United States. Combining the narrative and trade union emphasis of traditional labor history with the focus on culture and the labor process characteristic of contemporary labor history, the book offers an illuminating reinterpretation of the history of the U.S. labor movement from the colonial period onward. The authors argue that the length of the working day or week historically has been the central issue raised by the American labor movement during its most vigorous periods of organization.Beginning with a picture of working hours in colonial America and the early republic, Roediger and Foner then analyze the ideology of the movement for a ten-hour workday in the early nineteenth century. They demonstrate that the ten-hour issue was a key to the dynamism of the Jacksonian labor movement as well as to the unity of male artisans and female factory workers in the 1840s. The authors proceed to examine the subsequent demands for an eight-hour day, which helped to produce the mass labor struggles of the late nineteenth century and established the American Federation of Labor as the dominant force in American trade unionism. Chapters on labor movement defeats following World War I, on the depression years, and on the lack of progress over the last half-century complete the study. Our Own Time will be an ideal supplemental text for courses in U.S. labor and economic history.

Proceedings of the Black National and State Conventions, 1865-1900 Vol 1; traces the black convention movement in the years following the civil war. This volume covers the evolution of the convention movement up through the year 1870, with the passage in that year of the Fifteenth Amendment, granting black Americans the right to vote. Unlike the previous series, this book arranges the proceedings chronologically, beginning with the national conventions, followed by the states, for each of the given years. Each of the conventions is prefaced by an introduction. Since the number of conventions varied with respect to delegates present, issued debated, and impact, the introductions, accordingly vary in size. Reference notes for each convention has been placed at the end of that convention. Unless otherwise indicated, all conventions listed in this volume are in pamphlet form. Space limitations precluded presentation of all the national and state conventions which met during this period. Nevertheless, the materials included in this volume represent a significant cross-section of Afro-American thought and action that developed in the post-bellum years. Conventions not contained in this volume have been listed in the Appendix for the convenience of the reader. (No national conventions met in 1870, therefore, none included.)
