From the Publisher
"Burns provides a balanced, fair, and well-informed analysis based on labor scholarship. . . . It is well worth the read."--Labor
"This sophisticated book ushers readers into Archie Green's compelling but always enigmatic presence, vividly and immediately summoning his personal, political, and intellectual pasts. Readers are welcomed into the community of purpose he spent a lifetime creating."
--Robert Cantwell, author of If Beale Street Could Talk: Music, Community, Culture
"An intimate, first-person account of Green's life that illuminates ideological and strategic links between expressive culture and progressive action. Folklorists, labor historians, discographers, and students and scholars of American culture will treasure this book."
--Robert McCarl, editor of Latinos in Idaho: Celebrando Cultura
"Burns has done a great service by writing Archie Green: The Making of a Working-Class Hero, a fine study that does justice to its subject's fascinating intellectual development and considerable impact."--Labor Studies Journal
