Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This spirited collection is indispensable reading for anyone who wants to know what it will take for unions to inspire and mobilize a mass movement that will transform our nation, deepen our commitment to justice and democracy, and promote the inclusiveness that is key both to the labor movement and sustained economic growth."

--Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., President, Rainbow/PUSH Coalition

Book News Annotation:

A collection of 20 essays which critique the current state of the American trade union movement and offer advice on how the AFL-CIO can meet the challenge of rebuilding a strong labor movement. The papers are organized into sections which treat democracy within unions and at the workplace, the need to reach out to the unorganized, diversity issues, labor's relation to politics, and new considerations of internationalism.
