When he started writing “Beaten Down, Worked Up,” Steven Greenhouse had covered labor and workplace matters for two decades as a reporter with The New York Times.

But even though he was already deeply immersed in the subject, Greenhouse also drew upon the work of a number of other labor historians, reporters and writers when doing research for his second book about American unions and workers.
