Strike! by Jeremy Brecher ( Book )
34 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since its original publication in 1972, no book has done as much as Jeremy Brecher's Strike! to bring American labor history to a wide audience. Strike! narrates the dramatic story of repeated, massive, and sometimes violent revolts by ordinary working people in America. It tells this exciting hidden history from the point of view of the rank-and-file workers who lived it. In this expanded edition, Jeremy Brecher brings the story up to date. Revised chapters covering the forty years since the original edition place the problems faced by working people today in the context of 140 years of labor history. A new chapter, "Beyond One-Sided Class War," presents the American mini-revolts of the twenty-first century, from the Battle of Seattle to Occupy Wall Street and beyond. Strike! is essential reading for anyone interested in the historical or present-day situations of American workers and serves as inspiration for organizers, activists, and educators working to revive the labor movement today" --

Banded together economic democratization in the Brass Valley by Jeremy Brecher ( )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Providing incisive commentary on the historical and contemporary American working class experience, Banded Together: Economic Democratization in the Brass Valley documents a community's efforts to rebuild and revitalize itself in the aftermath of deindustrialization. Through powerful oral histories and other primary sources, Jeremy Brecher tells the story of a group of average Americans--factory workers, housewives, parishioners, and organizers--who tried to create a democratic alternative to the economic powerlessness caused by the closing of factories in the Connecticut Naugatuck Valley region during the 1970s and 1980s. This volume focuses on grassroots organization, democratically controlled enterprises, and supportive public policies, providing examples from the Naugatuck Valley Project community-alliance that remain relevant to the economic problems of today and tomorrow. Drawing on more than a hundred interviews with Project leaders, staff, and other knowledgeable members of the local community, Brecher illustrates how the Naugatuck Valley Project served as a vehicle for community members to establish greater control over their economic lives

In the name of democracy : American war crimes in Iraq and beyond ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on a wide range of documents--from the protocols of the Geneva Convention to FBI e-mails about prisoners held in Guantanamo Bay to executive-branch papers justifying the circumvention of international law--In the Name of Democracy examines the legality of the Iraq war and the occupation that followed. Included in this powerful investigation are eyewitness accounts, victim testimonials, statements by soldiers turned resisters and whistle-blowers, interviews with intelligence insiders, and contributions by Mark Danner and Seymour Hersh. The result is a controversial, chilling anthology that explores the culpability of officials as well as the responsibilities of ordinary citizens, and for the first time squarely confronts the matter of American impunity

Brass Valley : the story of working people's lives and struggles in an American industrial region by Jeremy Brecher ( Book )
6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For too many years American workers have been cut off from their own roots. When children go to school, they learn little about the people who work in factories and offices, their movements and their efforts for a better life. What is hidden from them is their own legacy, the heritage of culture and struggle handed on from other generations of working people. This book represents a new approach to history. It attempts to pass on that history from one group of workers to other workers, especially as workers and unions are at a crossroads, facing deteriorating conditions and even the permanent loss of jobs. But workers have faced these problems before, and surmounted them. This book can help all understand that our collective history helps us to face the challenges of the present and ones yet unknown of tomorrow. -- Publisher description

Save the humans? : common preservation in action by Jeremy Brecher ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Save the Humans? argues that individual self-interest depends on common preservation to provide for mutual well-being. As world leaders fail to cooperate to address climate change, nuclear proliferation, economic meltdown and other threats to our survival, increasing numbers of people experience a pervasive sense of denial and despair. But Jeremy Brecher has seen common preservation in action, and in Save the Humans? he shows how it works. From Gandhi's civil disobedience campaigns in India, to the 2011 uprisings throughout the Middle East, Brecher shows what we can learn from past social movements to help us confront today's global threats
