The inaugural issue of "Labor" offers an example of what readers can expect to find on a regular basis - full coverage of new trends in labor history. It features an extensive interview with retired Yale University professor David Montgomery, the acclaimed "dean" of the new labor history since the 1970s. One article plumbs management and labor archives as well as oral histories to reconstruct the patterns of abuse encountered by women on automobile shop floors from 1930 to1970. Drawing on the fieldwork in a southern California domestic service placement agency, a contributor documents the commodification of gender and ethnic stereotypes in the international maid trade. Another essay begins a two-part series on the history of U.S. labor and international solidarity; still another explores the recent desecration of the memorial to victims of the Ludlow Massacre. The contributors include: Dominique Buchillet; Carlos Fausto; Michael Heckenberger; Elsje Lagrou; E. Jean Langdon; James Barrett; Joshua Brown; Leon Fink; Dana Frank; John French; James Green; Julie Greene; Kristen Hill Maher; and Steve Meyer.
