The studies offered in this volume contribute to a Global Labor History freed from Eurocentrism and methodological nationalism. Using literature from diverse regions, epochs and disciplines, the book provides arguments and conceptual tools for a different interpretation of history - a labor history which integrates the history of slavery and indentured labor, and which pays serious attention to diverging yet interconnected developments in different parts of the world. The following questions are central:
▪ What is the nature of the world working class, on which Global Labor History focuses? How can we define and demarcate that class, and which factors determine its composition?
▪ Which forms of collective action did this working class develop in the course of time, and what is the logic in that development?
▪ What can we learn from adjacent disciplines? Which insights from anthropologists, sociologists and other social scientists are useful in the development of Global Labor History?

Review:

"[The author] relies on a wealth of selective examples to lay out a rich set of frameworks for the undertaking of transnational, comparative, and/or global labor analyses - that means plans for future historical inquiries."
Leon Fink, Department of History, University of Illinois at Chicago, reviewed for geschichte.transnational and H-Soz-u-Kult (09-07-2010)

"Marcel van der Linden's book 'Workers of the World: Essays toward a Global Labor History' is an encyclopaedic, thought provoking, tour de force on the field of labour relations that scholars from different disciplines should read (and possibly internalise)."
Maurizio Atzeni, Reviews in History, (review no. 908)

Winner of the René Kuczynski Prize for the best book on social and economic history of 2008.

"a great book"
Matthias Middell in International Review of Social History

"a work of considerable theoretical depth and empirical novelty yet structured, presented and written with admirable clarity"
Peter Waterman in Development and Change
