May Day: a Short History of the International Workers' Holiday

by Philip S. Foner
£10.99   paperback  International Publishers (2002)

May Day: a Short History of the International Workers This is the story of May Day - a holiday born in the USA a hundred years ago and since 1890 celebrated by working people the world over. In this short history, Philip Foner clarifies the dramatic origins of May Day and recounts many highlights of May Day celebrations over the years. Here is a story with a multitude of heroes and heroines who protest the injustices of their time as they unite to demand shorter hours of labor and a world free from imperialist war. In a stirring panorama, labor's May Day banners affirm the struggle for a better life now and the bright promise of a future still to be won.
