Defining the Peace

This chapter examines organized labor in postwar Georgia and the South. It shows that as a broadly inclusive and progressive social movement, organized labor in the South never really emerged from the cloud of disappointing postwar defeat. The politics of race, anti-unionism, and modernization—not industrial democracy—would be the war's most lasting political legacy for the state and region.

Keywords:   World War II, organized labor, labor unions, social movements
