Four American presidents—Lincoln, Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Truman—have resorted to seizure of private companies seventy-one times to prevent or halt work stoppages resulting from labor disputes. This is the first thorough study of presidential policy and its effect during government possession and operation. In addition to seizure cases, John Blackman discusses the other kinds of coercive measures taken to maintain production in industries affecting the national welfare. The book will be a valuable research and reference tool for all those concerned with labor-management relations, including scholars, government officials, union leaders, and company executives.
