Award-winning historian Dray shows the vital accomplishments of organized labor and illuminates its central role in social, political, economic, and cultural evolution.
Philip Dray's chronicle of affiliated labor's struggle against capital, THERE IS POWER IN A UNION, recaptures times when picket lines and secret meetings shaped the strength of the American economy. Dray concentrates on illustrating why organization may still be a useful tool for workplace rights and social fairness. The author's strength comes from his detailed understanding of the roots of labor unity as he traces a history from today's politically cornered interest groups, through the powerful pull of unions in the mid-20th century, to the origins of worker solidarity and organization in the 1800s.


"Packed with vivid characters and dramatic scenes, Dray's fine recap of a neglected but vital tradition has much to say about labor's current status." 07/19/2010
