Editorial Reviews


"Moves beyond a traditional account of worker and employer conflict to focus on the impact of racism on the longshoremen's union... Examine[s] issues ranging from the need for working-class solidarity, the divisiveness of race, to the control of power, in light of the overriding racial discrimination that permeated American life. They also illuminate the inner workings of a labor union, whose members of both races struggle to define and protect their interest as the question of race challenges the bonds of working-class solidarity." -- Choice --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
