Canadian Working-Class History, Third Edition
This is a very strong anthology, and, to my knowledge, there is nothing comparable for teaching Canadian labour and working-class history. The book covers a lot of important issues, especially issues of gender as well as ethnicity and ‘race.’ This collection is also particularly useful because it covers a broad time frame.

The book’s chief strengths are its size and scope. Also admirable are its efforts to balance Canada’s [key issues] of class, gender, regionalism, and ethnicity.
David Bright, Brock University
There is a definite need for a book of this kind. The book brings a wide range of readings together in a single source. This collection is a thorough and balanced sampling of the best writing in Canadian labour history.
