Dr. Brill explores the history of the Teamsters up through the 1970's by looking at the subject from the perspective of a number of the key players -- one at a time. A novel yet very effective approach to a large and complicated subject. The book proves to be both informative and entertaining. I recommend this book to anyone interested in U. S. labor history.

Format: Paperback
The teamsters is a book about he most powerful union in the world. This book targets crime, power, greed, money, loath, and the untimly death of some of the best crime bosses of all time including Jimmy Hoffa. The teamsters tells the story of the death of Jimmy Hoffa through the eyes of the people who knew him best. This book describes the powers that the teamsters have over the economy and the people. Jimmy Hoffa was the type of person that nobody would mess with he had the fire in his belly just right for the job of president of the teamsters. Hoffa was was the president of the teamsters during the 60's. He was incharge of 2.3 million teamsters. Hoffa was then aressted. Thats when Fitsimmions toke over the presidencey. Fitsimmions was not the kind of person you would expect to be the president of such a powerful union. He had gray hair, drupping eyes , And wrinkles all over his face. On the other Hoffa was the kind of man with the stocky build, and the glimmer in his eye perfect for the job president. After hoffa was released he dissappered. Many people were suspected for the death Jimmy such as Fitsimmions, Tony Provenzano when he was in jail with hoffa they got in a fight and Tony said that he would kill him, Ron Carey, Allen Dorfman, Charlie McGuire, Jakie Presser, and Harold Gibbions. This book gives you the low down on the of the most power union there is.
