Multiculturalism, as the coexistence of different cultural traditions inside the framework of a single sociopolitical structure is one of the most salient characteristics of Western Democratic Societies. This situation is due mainly to two factors. On the one hand, we find a plurality of historical communities within the State that have different cultural roots, and each one of them deffends the. right to have its cultural identity recognized. On the other hand, there is a growing exodus from people from less developed countries towards the western ones.

All Together Different book. Investigating why immigrant Jewish unionists in the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU) appealed to an international force of coworkers, Katz traces their ideology of a working-class based cultural pluralism, which Daniel Katz newly terms "mutual culturalism," back to the revolutionary experiences of Russian Jewish women.

Daniel Katz’s new monograph, All Together Different, revised from his Rutgers dissertation, begins with the question of why, during the early twentieth century, the predominantly Jewish International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) saw fit to take the almost unprecedented step.

Daniel Katz’s new monograph, All Together Different, revised from his Rutgers dissertation, begins with the question of why, during the early twentieth century, the predominantly Jewish International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) saw fit to take the almost unprecedented step of organizing African American clothing workers on an equal basis, but did not end with it. Katz, a onetime union organizer who currently teaches history at Empire State College, places this phenomenon in the context of the ILGWU’s preexisting multiculturalism-a multiculturalism that, far from being at odds with.

In 1917, Jewish socialists in America cheered the news that the Russian people had overthrown the czar.

American Jewish History. New York: New York University Press, 2011. xiv + 298 pp. This is a study of a group of visionary activist women members of the International Ladies Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) and their campaign to build a union based on principles of social, racial and ethnic equality. Katz traces the roots of their commitment to the legacy of the Russian Socialist Revolutionary Party and, specifically, to the Jewish brand of cultural nationalism as advocated by the Bund.

All Together Different - Yiddish Socialists, Garment Workers, and the Labor Roots of Multiculturalism. In All Together Different, Daniel Katz, an associate professor of history at Empire State College of the State University of New York, reveals why and how the predominantly Jewish leaders of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union enlisted many black and Hispanic colleagues beginning in the 1930s.

In the early 1930’s, the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) organized large numbers of Black and Hispanic workers through a broadly conceived program of education, culture, and community involvement. The ILGWU admitted these new members, the overwhelming majority of whom were women, into racially integrated local unions and created structures to celebrate ethnic differences. All Together Different revolves around this phenomenon of interracial union building and worker education during the Great Depression.Investigating why immigrant Jewish unionists in the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) appealed to an international force of coworkers, Katz traces their ideology of a working-class based cultural pluralism, which Daniel Katz newly terms “mutual culturalism,” back to the revolutionary experiences of Russian Jewish women. These militant women and their male allies constructed an ethnic identity derived from Yiddish socialist tenets based on the principle of autonomous national cultures in the late nineteenth century Russian Empire. Built on original scholarship and bolstered by exhaustive research, All Together Different offers a fresh perspective on the nature of ethnic identity and working-class consciousness and contributes to current debates about the origins of multiculturalism.

Fine history of the needle trades in NYC. For many imegrents from eastern Europe who worked in the garment industry, the union provided more than negotiations for wage increases and better working conditions, it was a place of learning and a community of different cultures coming together as a whole through membership and participation with each other toward a better life for all.

This is a well-researched and well-written book- very useful for anyone looking for practical, historically-based ideas for how, in the words of Labor Notes Magazine, to "put the movement back in the labor movement," by involving members in a variety of creative cultural and political activities.

Interesting and thought-provoking, I found some great insights and ideas for promoting true social unionism- strong, active unions that recognized the power of ethnic and racial diversity, unions that promoted class-consciousness and truely respected and empowered their membership. Thank you, Dr. Katz, for this fine contribution to labor history.

A clever, elegant title for a wonderful story. Although "Yiddish" stands out in the title, it's the melange of ethnicities sewing together that carries the tale.

This book is very surprising and interesting. I think it challenges a lot of assumptions that people like to make about how cultures have mixed and mingled in other eras. Some times I have found academic history books to be a bit dry but this is very easy to read and tells a great story. It makes me wonder how many other good stories are lurking in the archives.
