Neither Catholics nor Socialists, until just before 1914, succeeded in creating a mass movement in Liège. This contrast Page 18 also allows us to examine the impact of mass politics before 1914 on the interwar era. The three cities embrace much of Belgium's diversity in language, urban geography, and economic specialization. Ghent, a Dutch-speaking city whose economy rested on textiles, was a densely populated factory and harbor town. Liège, in the French-speaking part of the country, depended on sprawling coal and metallurgical industries that covered the city's hinterland.
Most of the research on labor movements before 1914 asks how workers organized themselves as a class, which usually meant a group of wage earners. But workers organized around other interests besides wages and working conditions interests such as religion, ethnicity, gender, and political ideology. For labor historians, the crucial issues have traditionally been workers' social and economic situation and their level of militancy, as seen in strikes or union organizing, for example. From the point of view of interest group politics, the questions can be quite different.
13 These new mass movements all tried to offer their followers a sense of belonging, an explanation for society's ills, and a promise to defend one's economic interests against other groups. Mass movements, in other words, held out the hope of community within the midst of what many people believed to be increasingly conflict-ridden, individualistic societies. Turn-of-the century movements as diverse as socialism, Catholic shopkeepers' unions, and nationalist leagues can be understood as variants of a common theme, as collective responses to the problems of industrial society.
