(Mother Jones Speaks: Speeches and Writings: Admirers and students of Mother Jones will want this comprehensive collection of her speeches, letters, articles, interviews and testimony before Congressional committees. In her own words, this brave and determined heroine to millions of workers, active from the end of the Civil War until shortly before her death in 1930, explains her life, her mission, her passion on behalf of working people. Here are her fiery speeches to crowds of striking miners, textile workers, railroad workers and others; her correspondence with political and union leaders of her era—even newspaper accounts of her activities that include confrontations with police and militia.)

Correction: For our March 22 labor history item on the 1990 baseball lockout, we mistakenly used a photo of Pittsburg Pirates pitcher Luis Tiant after the 1981 player strike. Thanks to Tom Nairn and Danny Lopez at the Bakery and Confectionary Trust Funds IT Department who caught the error.
