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.

This is an amazing book--just to hold it in one's hands feels so good; there's a sense of power and excellence just in the holding. And then begin reading, and one feels hope. It's hopeful to witness such thorough scholarship and love for one's subject, such a vast and important subject. But it's not heavy, plodding scholarship, not at all. The book is chock full of engaging stories (with a great batch of photos to boot), wonderful American stories of the struggles for working people's rights, of the rich and very formidable power of labor when individuals take it upon themselves to insist that all lives matter and are worth the struggle to work in safe conditions, be paid fairly, live! It's an astonishingly rich and wonderful book, and I'm going to send my copy to a friend and buy more copies and share them far and wide. What a worthwhile book, shining a great light on an essential element of U.S. history and society, without putting forth a political agenda. May it have a long life, find its way to homes and classrooms, and spawn many others of this quality. May it also shed important light in our time--when the Supreme Court and politicians have decreed that "corporations are people" and have the same rights as human beings, when the rights of workers are being seriously weakened or dismissed altogether by powerful anti-union forces in state governments and beyond.
