Publisher Comments:

From the dawning of the industrial epoch, wage earners have organized themselves into unions, fought bitter strikes, and gone so far as to challenge the very premises of the system by creating institutions of democratic self-management aimed at controlling production without bosses. With specific examples drawn from every corner of the globe and every period of modern history, this pathbreaking volume comprehensively traces this often underappreciated historical tradition. Ripe with lessons drawn from historical and contemporary struggles for workers control, Ours to Master and to Own is essential reading for those struggling to create a new world from the ashes of the old.

Immanuel Ness is professor of political science at Brooklyn College, City University of New York, and edits WorkingUSA.

Dario Azzellini is a writer, documentary director, and political scientist at Johannes Kepler University in Linz.

Synopsis:

Capitalism would have us believe we need our bosses. This volume reveals the history of workers who dare to disagree

Synopsis:

This path-breaking volume illuminates this under-appreciated and under-investigated aspect of working class resistance. While Capitalism would have us believe we need our bosses, this volume reveals the history of workers who dare to disagree.
