The Labor Wars

Here's a reprint of Sidney Lens' classic book on The Labor Wars, looking both within and without the unions, first published in 1974,

In Labor Wars, Lens demonstrates how, contrary to conventional wisdom, the struggle of workers for decent pay and conditions on the job, democracy, and social justice has played a far more pivotal role in shaping American life than any president or general. In gripping detail, Labor Wars rescues the rich tradition of working-class rebellion that has so powerfully defined our history.
