The International Labor Organization: An American View
The International Labor Organization: An American View
By Walter Galenson
University of Wisconsin Press, 1981, 351 pp

Written with an insider's knowledge and an outsider's objectivity, this survey by a Cornell professor gives a full picture of the ILO's history, structure and problems. The most compelling chapters are those in which he describes the U.S. decision to withdraw, which he finds long in gestation and perfectly justified, and the decision to return, which he finds premature.
