    Kim Moody is, without question, the sharpest radical labor writer alive today. No single person has shaped the way I see the labor movement as much as Moody has. He is a bit more open about his leftist politics in this volume than most of his other volumes — or, perhaps more accurately, he spends more time here actually discussing the ideas of Marx and Engels and others. Part of what's so great about this collection is that his essays on Marxist theory stand alongside in-depth essays like the on Kim Moody is, without question, the sharpest radical labor writer alive today. No single person has shaped the way I see the labor movement as much as Moody has.

Part of what's so great about this collection is that his essays on Marxist theory stand alongside in-depth essays like the one on the American hospital industry. Moody has a fluency in both radical theory and the nuts and bolts of union organizing and the American economy today. This book also contains his essay "The Rank-and-File Strategy," a brief but really rich piece on organizing strategy that Moody wrote a decade or so ago. There's also a very cool SDS position paper from the late 1960s that Moody cowrote that argues for a reorientation in SDS towards rank-and-file work. It appears that Moody's basic position on these issues hasn't changed for over 40 years.

    Great introduction to the Rank-and-File Strategy of US Trotskyists (e.g., ISO, Solidarity). Discussions of Worker Centers, strike laws, Central Labor Councils, and transnational coalitions were probably the most interesting parts. Also, since a lot of labor history stops in the 70s, I really enjoyed the detailed history of structural changes for labor during 80s, 90s, and 00s.
