Personalities, issues, and conflicts are analysed with meticulous care."The two authors of this book, Wm. Tattam and Dr. Jerry Lembcke are to be congratulated for a job well done. They have spent years of patient work, research, hundreds of interviews and many miles of travel to produce a true and factual picture of woodworkers' struggles to organize a strong union."-Harold Pritchett, Founding President of the I.W.A.
