Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"At last, a book has come along with a variety of vigorous proposals, perspectives and criticisms about the woeful plight and bright promise of the labor press. For if workers and their unions do not build a labor media of print, radio and television, they will suffer the continual injustices wrought by an unchallenged corporate dominance."—Ralph Nader, Center for the Study of Responsive Law
