The flivver king : a story of Ford-America by Upton Sinclair( Book )

50 editions published between 1937 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This] is history ... with monumental sensitivity to the compromise and conflict between ... two extremes. Its two stories - those of Henry Ford and Ford-worker Abner Shutt, unfold side by side, indeed dialectically. They are, in the end, one story: the saga of class and culture in 'Ford-America'. Workers and bosses, flappers and Klansmen, war and depression, Prohibition outlaws and high-society parties, unions and anti-union gun thugs - few aspects of American life in the first four decades of the last century are missing from this small masterpiece. [The book] sustains the same sure grasp of working class life which characterized [the author's] earlier classic, The Jungle, but much less sentimentally and with a steadier focus on how alienated work breeds not only degradation but also resistance and revolt. Originally written in 1937 to aid the United Automobile Workers' organizing drive, [this book] answers the question "Why do we need a union?" with quiet eloquence.-http://www.booksinprint.com
