Embedded with Organized Labor: Journalistic Reflections on the Class War at Home

by Steve Early
£14.95   paperback  Monthly Review Press (2009)

Embedded with Organized Labor: Journalistic Reflections on the Class War at Home by Steve Early Embedded With Organized Labor describes how union members have organized successfully, on the job and in the community, in the face of employer opposition now and in the past. The author has produced a provocative series of essays — an unusual exercise in “participatory labor journalism” useful to any reader concerned about social and economic justice.
As workers struggle to survive and the labor movement tries to revive during the current economic crisis, this book provides ideas and inspiration for union activists and friends of labor alike.

"Steve Early has long been a voice of distinctive clarity, honesty and intellectual seriousness in and about the labor movement. This collection performs a valuable service in bringing together a broad sample of his writing on class, politics, the trade union movement, its status and prospects. As always with Early’s work, these essays are grounded in concrete history and problems. To that extent, they also provide a unique window onto the last several decades of evolving American political history. At a time like this it is all the more important to have the benefit of a voice like his."
(Adolph Reed Jr.Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania)
"Steve Early says things other people in the labor movement would like to say but don’t, because of protocol, fear of firing, or, if truth be told, fear of afflicting the comfortable."
(Jane Slaughter, Labor Notes)
"This is an exciting collection that respects workers enough to engage them in desperately needed discussions about union strategy. It presents a radical defense of the working class and an uncompromising critique of the labor movement as it exists today."
(Sam Gindin, York University - Former Research Director, Canadian Auto Workers)
