"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."
From the Publisher
Annotation 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.
