These essays explore sugar mill seizures in Cuba, oil nationalization and railway strikes in Mexico, the attempted revolution in Guatemala, railway nationalization and Peronism in Argentina, Brazil’s textile strikes, the Bolivian revolution of 1952, Peru’s copper strikes, and copper nationalization in Chile — pivotal events in which workers and their unions played critical roles. The essays investigate the everyday acts on the job and in their communities through which workers attempted to assert more control over the work process.
