Journal symposium addresses Ost’s book

David Ost’s recent book, “The Defeat of Solidarity,” has a symposium devoted to it in the current (February 2007) issue of Labor History.

In it, four scholars discuss the significance of the book and its argument, in a comparative context dealing with Brazil, South Africa, Weimar Germany, and the contemporary United States, followed by Ost’s response.

Read the full text at Symposium.

“The Defeat of Solidarity” will be published in Polish translation in May.

Ost, who joined the Political Science faculty in 1986, holds a bachelor's degree from State University of New York at Stony Brook and his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin.
