“Class War, USA: Dispatches from Workers’ Struggles in American History”, is a rich collection of stories about ordinary people who resisted oppression and exploitation against all odds. Brandon Weber’s succinct and vivid essays capture crucial moments of struggle when working-class people built movements of hope and defiance.
From the mines to the factories to the fields, Weber shares the experiences of the real-life men and women who organized, heroically resisted, and battled the bosses and corrupt politicians.
