Workers' Control in Latin America, 1930-1979. JONATHAN C. BROWN (ed.), Chapel Hill & London: The University of North Carolina Press, 1997.

Raanan Rein


This is a useful collection of articles for undergraduate and graduate courses on Latin American history in general and Latin American labor history in particular. Most of the articles are written clearly and present their arguments didactically. Each article is arranged in the same way: a brief introduction reviewing the role played by workers in their nation's history is followed by an analysis of a specific episode of importance in the history of their struggle. Each piece ends with a brief post-script of a few paragraphs describing the subsequent evolution of the workers' role in that particular country.
