Summary
"A study of the hopes and fears that define patterns of labor activism, Southern Workers and the Search for Community is the first major effort to interpret the enduring legacy of the southern textile industry, company-owned mill villages, and the union struggles of the 1930s. G. C. Waldrep opens the gates of southern company towns to show how the erosion or outright destruction of community systematically undermined the ability of workers to respond to the assaults of employers overwhelmingly supported by government agencies and agents."--BOOK JACKET
