Many thanks to Kim Scipes (Sociology - Purdue Northwest) for sending news of the most recent issue of the academic journal Class, Race and Corporate Power. The journal focuses on the politics of corporate power, including an analysis of capital, labor, and race relations within nation-states and the global economy. The journal encourages contributions that explore these issues within holistic frameworks that borrow from a range of scholarly disciplines.
The particular issue Kim pointed me to is volume 5, issue 2 (2017), with the theme of U.S. Labor and Social Justice. The articles in that issue are listed below; PDFs of each article can be found here at the Journal's website.
- Introduction to Section on Labor and Social Justice, by Section Editor Kim Scipes
- John L. Lewis and His Critics: Some Forgotten Labor History That Still Matters Today, by Staughton Lynd
- Time to Tackle the Whole Squid: Confronting White Supremacy to Build Shared Bargaining Power, by Erica Smiley
- The Good, the Bad, the Ugly: A Lifetime with Labor, by Vincent Emanuele
- The Epic Failure of Labor Leadership in the United States, 1980-2017 and Continuing, by Kim Scipes
