This book tells the story of the development of labor law over the course of nearly seventy years - beginning with Mackay Radio, one of the earliest cases under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and ending with Hoffman Plastic, one of the most recent. It includes cases from the major topics in a basic or advanced course on Labor Law, describing not only the doctrinal evolution of law under the NLRA, but also the impact of the law on the lives of the people involved. The authors interviewed dozens of participants in the fourteen cases addressed in the book.
