What People are Saying About This

Elaine Bernard

From the Great Upheaval of 1877 to the teamsters UPS strike of 1997, here is the story of mass working—class action and organization. For anyone who wants to get behind the headlines on the "resurgence of U.S. labor," Strike! is essential reading.
—(Elaine Bernard, Executive Director, Harvard University Trade Union Program)

Dick Flacks

Strike! is the single most important book about the history of the American labor movement published in our time. And now Jeremy Brecher has brought the history up to date—just in time to make a new generation ready for this new era of labor struggle.
—(Dick Flacks, UC Santa Barbara)

This is one of the books Zinn used to write his People's History. Brecher's book isn't about everyday strikes, he only writes about strike waves and general strikes, moments when whole areas of the country or entire industries were on strike. completely engrossing.
