Abstract

This essay reviews the book Workers Unite! The International 150 Years Later, edited by Marcello Musto. This thematic anthology brings together an incredible array of documents on diverse issues such as trade unions and strikes, cooperative movements and credit, collective ownership and the state, education, internationalism, and political organization, written not only by Karl Marx but thirty other authors who were an integral part of the International Working Men's Association (IWMA). The anthology is accompanied by a substantive introduction that lays out the complex organizational and theoretical landscape of the IWMA. This book is an important source not only for understanding the historical origins of the international labor movement but also the relevance of its legacies for our contemporary time.
