History of May Day by Alexander Trachtenberg, 32 pp. Originally published in 1929 and reissued in many editions, this edition is published by Last Word Press in Garamond No. 8 in a revised format. A brief history of the struggles to establish working rights and the formation of a national day of action and solidarity, History of May Day offers readers a glimpse at labor history and efforts to corrupt and distort the workers' movement in the United States. This pamphlet also explores the foundation of Labor Day as a counter-balance to the workers' movement in order to subvert the workers. A nice addition to any labor library.
