In this new edition of his classic study of the Industrial Workers of the World, Mr. Renshaw tells the story of how they planned to combine the American working class, and eventually wage earners all over the world, into one big labor union with an industrial basis, a syndicalist philosophy, and a revolutionary aim. "A sensible and penetrating examination....Topical even today."-Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles Times.

Topical even today. Los Angeles Times A lively introduction to a trying and violent period in American industrial history. Journal of American History The story of American trade unionism is a sorry one-dirty and tragic-and this is one of the worst chapters. Times Literary Supplement A careful, balanced work. The New York Times Eminently readable. The Boston Globe
