Description

by Nigel Sellars, University of Oklahoma Press.

Too many histories of the IWW focus on its leaders or a tiny handful of strikes. Sellars has written a superb history of the union’s efforts on the ground, focused upon (but hardly limited to) oil and wheat workers. We see Wobbly organizing in practice, and the efforts of ordinary workers to transform their conditions and wrest some measure of control over and dignity in their lives.

320 pages, hardcover, in shrink wrap.
