Working USA: The Journal Of Labor And Society, a cross-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journal is calling for book reviews and review essays discussing texts relating to the cultural aspects of labor and class. The books reviewed can be academic studies from a range of disciplines, journalistic texts, works of fiction, biographies, memoirs, and artists' monographs. We will also consider reviews of art exhibits and cultural events, relevant to this topic. With some exceptions, the books reviewed should have a publication date within the last three years. The reviewers should have some expertise in the area of the review, and write in clear prose, free of specialized jargon.

Please send a brief description of the subject area within which they would like to work to Polina Kroik, Senior Associate Editor kroikp@lanecc.edu by June 1st 2014. You may also include a list of titles, or we can suggest titles for review.

About the journal:

Edited by Professor Immanuel Ness, WorkingUSA: The Journal of Labor and Society is a peer-review cross-disciplinary social science quarterly journal intended for a broad exploration of the economic, political, and social dimensions of work and labor throughout the world. The journal publishes articles directed to an open and critical analysis of the global and U.S. labor movements, organizations, and the working class. The journal editors see a strong and robust labor movement as a force that is central to the immediate and long term social, economic, and political interests of the working class.

WorkingUSA is published by Wiley Periodicals and indexed in Business ASAP (GALE Cengage), Expanded Academic ASAP (GALE Cengage), InfoTrac, and PAIS: Public Affairs Information Service (ProQuest).
