Organizing for Power
Building a 21st Century Labor Movement in Boston
Aviva Chomsky, Steve Striffler
What separates Labor in 21st Century Boston from most academic volumes is that the chapters are written by labor leaders who provide insider perspectives into the past and present of labor struggle in the greater Boston region. Contributors include not only academics who have been active participants in regional labor conflicts, but labor leaders themselves who provide an insider’s account of the political struggles that have not only defined the region, but much of the nation. As such, the book will appeal to a broad audience of scholars, students, activists, and informed readers who are interested in issues of labor, inequality, organizing, and political change. To ensure the book’s appeal, the chapters are short, readable, and jargon-free. Chapters will be tightly edited to ensure coherence.
