Foreign Worker and the German Labor Movement by John J. Kulczycki

Book Description

Based on extensive research in Polish and German archives this book documents the major developments within the labor movement in the Ruhr, including the mass strikes of 1889, 1905 and 1912 and the so-called 'Polish Revolt' of 1899. The author argues that Polish militancy generally exceeded that of native miners and calls into question the standard view of the Polish workers' relationship to the labor movement. This revisionist book begs a reconsideration of the role that foreign labor plays in modern industrial societies.

Belonging to the Nation by John J. Kulczycki Belonging to the Nation, Hardback (March 2016)

In 1939 Nazis identified Polish citizens of German origin and granted them legal status as ethnic Germans of the Reich. After the war Poland did just the opposite: searched out Germans of Polish origin and offered them Polish citizenship. John Kulczycki's account underscores the processes of inclusion and exclusion that mold national communities.

Polish Coal Miners' Union and the German Labor Movement in the Ruhr, 1902-1934 by John J. Kulczycki Polish Coal Miners' Union and the German Labor Movement in the Ruhr, 1902-1934, Hardback (March 1997)

Assessing the Polish Coal Miners' Union and the German labour movement, this volume examines such areas as: national solidarity in the interest of the working class; the consolidation of the Polish union movement, 1905-1912; and the integration of the ZZP in the labour movement, 1905-1914.
