The Holy Order of Knights of Labour, based in Ontario, pressed for a more egalitarian society by unifying industrial workers.


Publisher's Description:

This compelling analysis of the Knights of Labor in nineteenth-century Ontario takes issue with traditional portrayals of the Knights as a utopian, nostalgic, and anachronistic organization and shows the important role they played in the creation of a Canadian working class.
