paperback    ISBN 13: 9781629638003 | ISBN 10: 1629638005

Jeremy Brecher's Strike! narrates the dramatic story revolts by working class people in America. This hidden history is told from the point of view of the rank-and-file workers who lived it, encompassing the repeated repression of workers' rebellions by company sponsored violence local police, state militias, and the U.S. Army and National Guard.
 
It reveals a dimension of American history rarely found in the usual school books and history courses. Since its original publication in 1972, Strike! has become an indispensible resource. This 50th anniversary edition brings the story up to date with chapters covering the mini-revolts of the 21st century, including Occupy Wall Street and the Fight for Fifteen.
 
The new edition includes over 100 pages of new materials and concludes with an examination of current struggles, ranging from #BlackLivesMatter to the teacher strikes and the the Student and School Climate Strikes.
