Unions and the City
Negotiating Urban Change
Unions and the City serves as a road map toward both a stronger labor movement and a socially just urbanism.

New Solidarities and Spatial Strategies in an Urban Age

In Achieving Workers' Rights in the Global Economy, Richard P. Appelbaum and Nelson Lichtenstein argue that industrial accidents, low wages, poor working conditions, and voicelessness endemic to the vast majority of workers who labor in the export industries of the global South arise from the very nature of world trade and production.
