This book by three Argentinian authors traces the history of what is Latin America's oldest and largest working class. Its mid-19th century origins in migration from overseas and internal proletarianization are traced. The authors relate the history of Argentinian workers' clashes with both the state and employers and the preponderant influence that anarchists and syndicalists had over the labour movement in the early 20th century.
