Palace Car Prince is the first book-length biography of George Pullman (1831-1897), an entrepreneur whose name became synonymous with the golden age of U.S. railroad travel in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In this impressively researched work, Liston Leyendecker portrays the transformation of a man of vision who ascended to prominence following the Civil War only to lose control of his empire in the face of a rapidly changing world of industrial and labor relations. An adventurous young man, Pullman ventured, westward to Chicago and Colorado from his upstate New York home, eventually leaving a successful store in the Colorado goldfields in 1863 to return to Chicago and form his Palace Car Company, the manufacturer of luxury sleeping cars. Though Pullman's hard work brought him the admiration, power, and wealth he sought, it also tired him and made him increasingly irascible. As the Palace Car Company prospered, Pullman--who initially was regarded as a "hands-on" manager--became removed from the company's daily affairs. He relied more and more on the advice of his brother Albert, and growing isolation continued throughout his career and extended into family matters. The results of Pullman's aloofness became particularly apparent when, during the railroad workers' strike of 1894, he was publicly vilified as the archetypal nineteenth-century robber baron for his stubborn refusal to negotiate with the suffering strikers.

After the Strike places two important episodes in American labor history, the 1894 Pullman strike and the rise of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, into a new perspective - the century-long development of union organizing and labor-management relations in the Pullman Company. Connecting the stories of Pullman car builders and porters takes us to the heart of critical questions about American society: What created job segregation by race and gender? What role did such segregation play in shaping the labor movement? Susan Eleanor Hirsch illuminates, as have few others, the relationship between labor organizing and the racial and sexual discrimination practiced by both employers and unions. Because the Pullman Company ran the sleeping-car service for American railroads and was a major manufacturer of railcars, its workers were involved in virtually every wave of union organizing from the 1890s to the 1940s. In exploring what the years of struggle meant for the men and women of the Pullman Company, After the Strike also reveals the factors that determined the limited success and narrow vision of most American unions.
