Abstract Collection contains a seminar paper which analyses the involvement of the United Mine Workers in the Goldfield (Nevada) miners' strike of 1906-1908, the union's part in organizing the International Workers of the World, and whether the principles supported by either organization reflected the aspirations of the workers they represented.
