Inhaltsangabe: The work of the indefatigable Alice Hanson Cook benefitted the lives of working people?and especially working women?on four continents. A pioneer in union organizing, worker education, and equal rights for working women, Cook carried on her path-blazing work across the country and around the world, across racial, ethnic, national, and class lines, and across boundaries she refused to accept were impassable.
In A Lifetime of Labor, called "a deeply satisfying memoir" by the Times-Picayune, Cook recounts a life of activism, teaching, and research that spanned nearly a century and intersected with progressive movements at home and abroad. Cook lucidly recalls the many phases of her long and remarkable career, including her years of research on creating just and viable options for working women. As the Syracuse Herald-Journal noted, "Cook helped bring to the public issues as equal pay and comparable worth, maternity leave and support programs for working mothers."
Alice Cook's autobiography, written when she was in her eighties and nineties, is a unique document in social history, an important record of her ground-breaking thought and research, and a matter-of-fact account of a life devoted to justice and lived to the fullest.
"A spirited autobiography by a pioneering feminist, labor organizer, socialist and scholar."? Kirkus Reviews.

The work of the indefatigable Alice Hanson Cook has benefitted the lives of working people and especially working women on four continents. Her pioneering work in union organizing, worker education, and equal rights for working women took her across the country and around the world, across racial, ethnic, national, and class lines, and across boundries she refused to accept as impassable.
In A Lifetime of Labor, Cook recounts a remarkable life that spans a century and intersects with progressive movements at home and abroad. Booklist calls A Lifetime of Labor the autobiography of an enduring and persistent activist. Appropriately, the book closes with Cook?s Agenda for Change,? which calls for a new definition of equality? to recognize the needs and rights of women and men in their roles as both parents and workers. At age 94, Alice Cook was still fighting the good fight.?
