Journal Article


Abstract


  • This inspiring Festschrift for historian Marcel van der Linden is aptly titled

    On the Road to Global Labour History, recognising the pivotal role that Marcel

    played in developing this field. Included in the bibliography are Marcel's

    publications over five decades, revealing the extent of his geographic

    breadth. The theme of moving beyond national boundaries is prominent

    in his work, with titles such as Workers of the World, Labour History Beyond

    Borders, and Transnational Networks. His internationalism is also indicated

    in the many translated works, in Italian, Spanish, and Chinese, as well as

    many in the original German. In this Festschrift several chapters have been

    translated from the German by Ben Lewis.
