Praise for Reviving the Strike: How Working People Can Regain Power and Transform America…
"Reviving the Strike is a primer for every trade unionist tired of being the victim."--In These Times
"An effective and provocative historical approach to a complex problem: How do working Americans and their unions reverse the decline in living standards and employment security in the global economy?"--Larry Cohen, International President of the Communication Workers of America
"American employers think that the strike is pretty much dead. On our side of the bargaining table, too many unions seem to agree. Joe Burn's new book explains why this traditional tool of worker struggle is still relevant and how it can be used effectively in the 21st century. Reviving The Strike deserves a wide labor audience. Union members should not go into bargaining without it!"--Steve Early, author of The Civil Wars in US Labor.
