Black Milwaukee: The Making of an Industrial Proletariat, 1915-45, by Trotter, Joe William Jr.. University of Illinois Press: Urbana and Chicago [Illinois], 1988. Edition: Reprint.. ISBN: 0252060350. Trade Paperback, 6 by 9 inches, 302 pages. Pictorial paper cover with white and black lettering. Illustrated with charts and black and white photographs. Includes bibliographic references and chapter notes, an index, and several appendixes.
Condition: Good minus. Corners slightly worn and bent. Pages are wavey and there are some light splash marks on the upper page edges, so this book was probably wet at some point. Text pages show no watermarks (excluding the aforementioned marks to the upper page edges), there is no musty odor, no markings in the text, and nothing to affect use or readability.
Contents: Publisher's Note:
Other historians have tended to treat black urban life mainly in relation to the ghetto-experience, but Trotter offers a new perspective which complements yet also goes well beyond that approach. The blacks in Black Milwaukee were not only ghetto dwellers -- they were also industrial workers. The process by which they achieved this status is the subject of Trotter's ground-breaking study.
