Quick Overview

James H. Peabody and teh Western Federation of Miners

by George G. Suggs, Jr.

'This is by far the best book available on the period of Colorado's great hard-rock labor strikes during 1903-1904. It is a superbly researched and analyzed study. The writing is concise, crisp, and moves steadily ahead toward the tragic climax. WhileGovernor James H. Peabody is the chief villain, Suggs is objective in his examination of both sides and their leadership. Nothing has surpassed this book in the past decade of scholarship.' -Duane A. Smith

'George G. Suggs, Jr., has written a splendid monograph, rich in detail, that will be extremely uiseful to business and labor historians studying the dynamics of community behavior during strikes and the character of the open shop movement of the first decade of the twentieth century.' -Business History Review

'Suggs's book remains the state-of-the-art investigation of the pivotal role of state government in the Colorado labor wars of 1903-1904. It is a book whose time has come with the emphasis on conquest, class, and teh role of teh state in the new western history.' -Elizabeth Jameson

'Suggs's account of the struggle is valuable because his use of the records of the Peabody administration indicates strongly the basic assumption of the governor and his aides that any action, public or private, was justifiable to destroy the union. His intelligent probing of municipal and county records in the strike regions shows how quickly and often illegally teh management dominated citizens alliances, gained control of local government, and then ran roughshod over the economic, political, and legal rights of the union men.' -Journal of American History
