Strike! by Jeremy Brecher( Book )

45 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its original publication in 1972, no book has done as much as Jeremy Brecher's Strike! to bring American labor history to a wide audience. Strike! narrates the dramatic story of repeated, massive, and sometimes violent revolts by ordinary working people in America. It tells this exciting hidden history from the point of view of the rank-and-file workers who lived it. In this expanded edition, Jeremy Brecher brings the story up to date. Revised chapters covering the forty years since the original edition place the problems faced by working people today in the context of 140 years of labor history. A new chapter, "Beyond One-Sided Class War," presents the American mini-revolts of the twenty-first century, from the Battle of Seattle to Occupy Wall Street and beyond. Strike! is essential reading for anyone interested in the historical or present-day situations of American workers and serves as inspiration for organizers, activists, and educators working to revive the labor movement today"--

In the name of democracy : American war crimes in Iraq and beyond by Brendan Smith( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a wide range of documents--from the protocols of the Geneva Convention to FBI e-mails about prisoners held in Guantanamo Bay to executive-branch papers justifying the circumvention of international law--In the Name of Democracy examines the legality of the Iraq war and the occupation that followed. Included in this powerful investigation are eyewitness accounts, victim testimonials, statements by soldiers turned resisters and whistle-blowers, interviews with intelligence insiders, and contributions by Mark Danner and Seymour Hersh. The result is a controversial, chilling anthology that explores the culpability of officials as well as the responsibilities of ordinary citizens, and for the first time squarely confronts the matter of American impunity
Brass Valley : the story of working people's lives and struggles in an American industrial region by Jeremy Brecher( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 2002 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For too many years American workers have been cut off from their own roots. When children go to school, they learn little about the people who work in factories and offices, their movements and their efforts for a better life. What is hidden from them is their own legacy, the heritage of culture and struggle handed on from other generations of working people. This book represents a new approach to history. It attempts to pass on that history from one group of workers to other workers, especially as workers and unions are at a crossroads, facing deteriorating conditions and even the permanent loss of jobs. But workers have faced these problems before, and surmounted them. This book can help all understand that our collective history helps us to face the challenges of the present and ones yet unknown of tomorrow. -- Publisher description

Save the humans? : common preservation in action by Jeremy Brecher( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Save the Humans? argues that individual self-interest depends on common preservation to provide for mutual well-being. As world leaders fail to cooperate to address climate change, nuclear proliferation, economic meltdown and other threats to our survival, increasing numbers of people experience a pervasive sense of denial and despair. But Jeremy Brecher has seen common preservation in action, and in Save the Humans? he shows how it works. From Gandhi's civil disobedience campaigns in India, to the 2011 uprisings throughout the Middle East, Brecher shows what we can learn from past social movements to help us confront today's global threats

With John Quincy Adams' help arguing the case before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Africans emerged victorious with the courts stating for the first time that people of color had rights. Geoffrey Owens of The
