The 284-page volume, Workers and Unions in Wisconsin: A Labor History Anthology, represents the first time historical material on Wisconsin labor is presented in a single volume.
Anthology editor Darryl Holter observes in his introduction,
"During the Progressive and new Deal eras-from about 1905 to 1935-Wisconsin became a veritable laboratory for reform and social experimentation. The labor and social legislation enacted in the Badger state, including workers' compensation, unemployment insurance, and other progressive measures, served as models for similar laws in other states."
