Published 45 years ago and re-released in 2014, Strike! is a seminal text in the canon of American labor history. “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 times like these, where labor is once again called to the front lines of struggle, Brecher’s text serves not only as a work of history but a road map and a guide.
