Featured in a symposium in ASR 64, and now available in paper. Based on extensive archival research, this book focuses on the IWW during the World War I era when it organized militant strikes that drastically curtailed production in key industries. It examines the debates within the union on how to build a broadly based movement to oppose the war and details the campaign of repression launched by the federal government to crush the Wobblies.
