    • Abstract:
      In this article, Selig Perlman's work is appraised by one of his best-known students and collaborators. Perlman's influence as a teacher is traced to the vast knowledge of history, both labor and general, that he exhibited in the classroom and to his ability to give order and meaning to masses of data and of seemingly unrelated facts. In his writings, Perlman stressed the ideological bases of trade union development. Although critical of several aspects of Perlman's scholarship, particularly his treatment of the role of the ‘intellectual,’ the author concludes that Perlman's basic assumption concerning the function of trade unions in a capitalistic society has stood the test of time.
