Abstract:

Scope and content: Describes ten critical worker's strikes in American labor history, including the Lowell Mill Girls strike, the Bread and Roses strike, and the Justice for Janitors strike

Loomis describes ten critical worker's strikes in American labor history. He shows how these labor uprisings do not just reflect the times in which they occurred but speak directly to the present moment. The result is a fresh perspective on the present perilous condition of American workers, as well as a fresh perspective on American history. -- adapted from jacket
