Reviews

"I doubt any writer has suffered longer over the plight of American unions or described their troubles more vividly than Thomas Geoghegan."
--Bookforum

"A fluid writer, Geoghegan devotes the bulk of his engaging book to that famous question: What is to be done?"
--Commonweal Magazine

"Wonderful."
--David Bensman, The American Prospect

"History shows that the ideas that grow into legislation need an expansive advocacy to fertilize their bloom--which is why Geoghegan's book is so useful."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A valuable contribution to current debates about the future of the labor movement. The U.S. labor movement can often be an intellectually bereft place, and Geoghegan deserves a lot of credit for the contributions he's made to combatting its debilitating stolidity."
--Jacobin

"Contributes passion and knowledge to the work of rebuilding the backbone of American democracy--thriving workers."
--Minnesota Educator
