Overview

From the nineteenth-century textile mills of Lowell, Massachusetts, to the triumph of unions in the twentieth century and their waning influence today, the contest between labor and capital for the American bounty has shaped our national experience.

His epic, character-driven narrative not only restores to our collective memory the indelible story of American labor, it also demonstrates the importance of the fight for fairness and economic democracy, and why that effort remains so urgent today.

I was surprised at the abuse of power and wealth in this country. I am sure it is still what built it and is continuing to use people as slaves for their betterment and their greed. Opened my eyes. I would recommend this book for everyone.
