"Shackel's contribution provides a deeply researched discussion about an often-neglected event in labor history." --International Journal of Heritage Studies
"This important and timely book uncovers the forgotten history of the Lattimer Strike and massacre, its impact on the history and development of organized labor in the United States, and the enduring legacies of racial and class tensions these events have for the present. The story of the xenophobic exploitation of immigrants and their subsequent central role in the struggle for better working conditions and wages is used to offer a thoughtful and considered intervention into contemporary polarizing debates about immigration and migrant labor. Remembering Lattimer is a statement about the implications of the choices communities and nations alike make to collectively remember and forget, and the importance of breaking long held silences for the insight the past may offer for present and future aspirations for social justice."--Laurajane Smith, coauthor of Heritage, Communities, and Archaeology
