Reviews

Praise for the first edition:
"A comprehensive history of American labor. . . . Enlivened and diverted by the humorous cartoon narratives of Joe Sacco."
--The Washington Post

"Thoroughly includes the contributions of women, Native Americans, African Americans, immigrants, and minorities, and considers events often ignored in other histories."
--Booklist

"An evergreen ... comparable to Howard Zinn's award-winning A People's History of the United States."
--Publishers Weekly

"A marvelously informed, carefully crafted, far-ranging history of working people."
--Noam Chomsky
