Synopsis of A Lifetime of Labor: The Autobiography of Alice H. Cook

This book is both graceful autobiography and perceptive social history that will be of lasting value.—Library Journal

Library Journal

Cook died in February 1998, at the age of 94, ending a life-long career in labor activism. She is best known for her research on and programs for working women. Following early work with the YWCA, she spent nearly 30 years at Cornell Universitys College of Industrial and Labor Relations. In 1978, the Ford Foundation published her book, The Working Mother, based on international study of womens and household conditions. A 1993 film, Never Done: The Working Life of Alice H. Cook, documented her life and work. Now she has chronicled her full life story from her birth in 1903. Drawn from her own diaries and notes, this book is both graceful autobiography and perceptive social history that will be of lasting value to students of labor history and feminist studies. An important addition for both academic and public libraries.Linda V. Carlisle, Southern Illinois Univ., Edwardsville
