Summary: ""The Ordeal of the Jungle" boldly revises previous scholarship regarding Chicago's labor movement in the World war I era. It examines the failures of the Chicago Federation of Labor to build a progressive, interracial organization. Following failed strikes and a tumultuous time, the Chicago Race Riot of 1919 shattered the CFL's tenuous interracial alliance."--Provided by publisher.
