Dorothy Sue Cobble

Rutgers University

Cobble will write a book tracing U.S. labor movements from anti-slavery and natural rights discourse in the nineteenth century through the New Deal in the twentieth century to the present day. By drawing on these and other social democratic traditions, she will attempt to enrich our understanding of the liberal tradition in the United States and chart the history of global capitalism.
