7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Kim C. on August 4, 2008
This book is a series of essays by various people in the workers' movement in Argentina. Some are better than others, but they all come together to give you a clear idea of what is going on. It is so heartening to see the workers, slowly but surely, winning their dignity and right to work to support themselves.
The introduction is by Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis, who made a documentary of the workers' movement called The Take. If you can find a copy of that, watch it too!
The book is an easy read -- I was so entranced I went through it pretty fast because I couldn't stop reading it.

The testimonies in this book are inspiring and pricless, and what is important is not that there is actual , dramatic change , but rather that change is possible .

This book takes no particular ideological stands, but presents a phenomenon unique to Argentina(for now, I hope) which presents a promise
to be an antidote to "free"-market globalism.
