"This lively account of the Wobblies--the first complete history by an independent observer--takes the reader from the dramatic inaugural convention through the strikes they organized among the unskilled immigrant workers of the East; the free-speech demonstrations they led throughout the West; their efforts to reach the migrant workers and hoboes; their frequent bloody clashes with employers and the police, who rode the strikers down like Cossacks; their persecution during World War I for opposition to militarism; and theri interminable fights among themselves, which eventually hastened theri downfall." (from the front flap).
