In Radical Heritage, Carlos A. Schwantes tells the story of labor, socialism, and reform in Washington and British Columbia during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Schwantes demonstrates how the experience of these two provinces influenced the development of American and Canadian labor movements and the rise of social democracy. He also shows how the politics of identity and ethnicity were reflected in the struggle for social justice.

This book is the first comprehensive history of the labor, socialism, and reform movement in the two provinces, and it will be of interest to scholars of American and Canadian history, labor history, social history, and Canadian history.; 8vo; 288 pages.
