America on Strike
A survey of labor strikes in America

If you don't know the History of American Labor,
you don't know American History
I have come to the conclusion that the labor movement in America and around the world is the key to understanding or misunderstanding modern history. It is the Rosetta Stone to deciphering modern day politics.
The descendents of the Holocaust victims rewrite their story anew every generation vowing that it shall never be forgotten. It is the obligation of each generation to rewrite the past in the vocabulary of their times in order to keep it alive for all time.
This book is my small contribution to keeping the worker history of America alive for another generation.
