This massive volume collects the bulk of the speeches, articles, letters, congressional testimony, and interviews left behind by Irish-American labor organizer Mary Harris Jones, better known as Mother Jones. The speeches especially show Jones' strong commitment to making life better for the country's working men and women, and the no-holds-barred language that she used to express that commitment. Especially notable are historian Philip Foner's introductory essay on the life of Mother Jones, and his introductions and notes that accompany the speeches and documents included. This volume should be in the collection of any academic library or large public library, as well as on the bookshelf of any reader with a serious interest in labor history.
