A History of America in Ten Strikes

A History of America in Ten Strikes

by Erik Loomis Author

Despite what union-busters would tell you, most of US history can be followed by watching what the unions were up to - and the strikes they lead. This book looks at 10 of the most influential strikes in US history - though names over 150 of them - and shows readers how they influenced the political structure at the time. From the slave strikes during the Civil War to more modern labor movements that define what capitalism looks like today, this book provides a surprisingly comprehensive look at US history.
