Overview


The War At Home unapologetically attempts to describe and analyze the major elements of that class war being waged today in the U.S. against American workers and their unions. Its ten chapters cover the current Jobs Crisis, offshoring, Free Trade and the collapse of manufacturing, declining wages and workers' incomes, the great American Tax Shift, attacks on Pensions and Social Security, the pending privatization of Medicare, the health care costs crisis, the transformations of the Republican and Democratic parties, the decline of union membership and bargaining power, the pending split in the AFL-CIO, and the origin and evolution of the corporate offensive from Reagan through George W. Bush.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Did you like Howard Zinns, A People's History of the United States? If so, you are going to love the new book by Jack Rasmus, The War At Home. Rasmus effectively picks up the story where Zinn leaves off….His book is an excellent complement and companion to Zinn's popular work….Give The War At Home a look. It is a sobering and path-breaking effort to 'put it all in one place'." [Harvey Schwartz, Curator, ILWU Oral History Collection]
