This article highlights the conference Syndicalism: Swedish and International Historical Experiences in March 1998 in Stockholm, Sweden. Approximately ninety people took part in this conference. The sponsors were the University of Stockholm Department of Economic History and the Sveriges Arbetares Centralorganisation, which has the distinction of being the only syndicalist trade union federation to survive the Second World War. In her opening speech Ulla Wikander emphasized the need to re-evaluate and rewrite the history of the socialist movement with a view to getting back in touch with its radical roots. Newer methodological and theoretical approaches were also represented. Francis Shor essayed a gendered analysis of the Industrial Workers of the World. Temma Kaplan's closing keynote speech, Syndicalist Forms of Grassroots Movements of Women, wove together women's history and labor history into a seamless whole.
