Promotional Information

We plan to market this title extensively in the fields of labor history and sociology specifically, including advertising in important labor history, American history, and sociology journals; exhibiting at academic conferences, and advertising through listserves and websites important to the disciplines. Given the subject of the book's close parallels to the contemporary economic situation, we also think this title can reach a general readership. We will print and web advertise in a number of progressive publications, as well as in important magazines and journals that reach a scholarly audience.
