About this product
- DescriptionThe first book-length, scholarly treatment of the subject, this volume examines the AFL-CIO's Committee on Political Education (COPE) from its origins in 1955 to the stunning defeat of COPE-endorsed candidates in the 1966 Congressional elections. In an attempt to determine whether the AFL-CIO is a surrogate for the social democratic party that the American party system lacks, Draper analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of labor's alliance with the Democratic party and the degree to which COPE was successful in mobilizing a coalition of workers and mirities to pursue social democratic goals.
