“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.
Class War, USA, is an invaluable tool for learning the lessons of grassroots struggle, and is the perfect counter-narrative to the myth that change comes only from the top.
