research overview

  • Professor White's research is primarily concerned with the role of coercion, including state-sponsored coercion, in the administration of labor rights in modern America. Much of his work is historical in focus, with an emphasis on the early 20th Century. He recently completed a book on the 1937 'Little Steel' Strike, a watershed moment in the course of the New Deal and the history of labor relations. He is now working on another book, this one about the use of anti-radical 'criminal syndicalism' laws against leftist activist and unionist in the early Twentieth Century.
