Conner explains the background, organization, and workings of the National War Labor Board, created by President Wilson in April 1918. She analyzes the board's struggle to succeed and reveals how both labor and business attemted to use this partnership to further their own special interests. The author shows how, when dissatisfied private employers refused to cooperate voluntarily, the Wilson administration was forced to make compliance mandatory.
