This book charts the turbulent history of the International Federation of Trade Unions (IFTU) from its foundation in 1913, to its dissolution in 1945. Although no formal IFTU archive survives, Geert Van Goethem has drawn on a wealth of documentary sources in France, Germany, Britain, North America and Scandinavia to reconstruct a convincing and lively account of the IFTU, which is intrinsically bound up with the history of the inter-war period.
