Chapter Summary

This front matter section presents the Table of Contents and the Acknowledgments for the book Workers of the World: Essays toward a Global Labor History. The book offers studies that contribute to a Global Labor History freed from Eurocentrism and methodological nationalism. The book's shape resembles a classic hourglass. It begins with a broad perspective. Then, the focus narrows. Finally, the viewpoint widens again. The essays in the first part discuss the concept of the working class", so central in all labor history. The essays in the second and third parts are the narrow" middle piece. Drawing on historical and contemporary case studies, they seek to unravel the historical logic in working-class collective action.

Keywords: Eurocentrism; Global Labor History; methodological nationalism; working-class
