What People are Saying About This

Peter L. Francia

Roof succeeds at taking complicated issues and making them understandable. This meticulously researched book may well be the final word on what has prevented the labor movement from making greater strides in winning prolabor and progressive policies at the national level.

Peter L. Francia, author of The Future of Organized Labor in American Politics
