As the nation's most prominent liberal labor lawyer during a period of ascending labor power, Lee Pressman served as General Counsel of the Congress of Industrial Organizations from 1933 to 1948. Working among the movers and shapers of American politics, he was also one of the most prominent underground communists. This book chronicles Pressman's fascinating public life and examines his contributions to the rebirth of the American labor movement, to the development of U.S. labor law, and to the history of the New Deal era.

Review quote

"This is an outstanding book in its conception, research, analysis, and presentation, certain to take its place as one of the leading studies of labor-liberalism in the New Deal era. Gall's work rightly focuses on the legal and public policy issues that were at the heart of the New Deal dispensation. A splendid example of mature, thoughtful, and engaged scholarship." -- Robert H. Zieger, University of Florida
