Product Overview

As a boy in the 1930s, Kenneth Moore experienced the misery of the Great Depression firsthand. When he grew up after having watched President Franklin Roosevelt work furiously to rescue a population from joblessness and poverty, Moore became a union organizer and executive in the positions of international vice president of BRT and UTU.Over a lifetime of fighting for the working man and woman, Moore faced death threats, a stabbing, a robbery, and relentless opposition. He traveled the world for the cause of labor and witnessed history. Now Moore looks back on that life in a sweeping memoir that is the story of a man, a movement, a family tapestry, and a rich meditation on some pivotal and horrific moments of the past: Hiroshima (with never-before-released survivor interviews), the Holocaust, and the atrocities done to Native Americans. Tragedies and Fortunes is a fascinating insiders look at the rise of organized labor and the times in which it came to be. Its a tale of heroes and villains, of struggles against greed and triumphs for good. Its a great American story, a life lived in devotion to a cause, and one mans lessons from the past that may help all of us make better choices for our future. *Author: Moore, Kenneth *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 644 *Publication Date: 2008/06/03 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 1.56 inches
