Embedded With Organized Labor describes how union members have organized successfully, on the job and in the community, in the face of employer opposition now and in the past. The author has produced a provocative series of essays-an unusual exercise in "participatory labor journalism" useful to any reader concerned about social and economic justice. As workers struggle to survive and the labor movement tries to revive during the current economic crisis, this book provides ideas and inspiration for union activists and friends of labor alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an exciting collection not only for the ideas presented, but for its potential contribution to developing a working class readership base that could dramatically widen the discussions and debates so desperately needed."
---Sam Gindin, York University and Former Research Director, Canadian Auto Workers


"Early says things other people in the labor movement would like to say but don't, because of protocol, fear of firing, or, if truth be told, fear of afflicting the comfortable. This collection shows the consistency, over the years, of Early's insistence on a worker's-eye view of the big picture, as he uses his acid pen to call out our ersatz reformers and self-appointed spokesmen."
---Jane Slaughter, Labor Notes


"For three decades, Steve Early has been in the forefront of the fight for worker power and union democracy. His experience as an organizer gives him rare insight into the problems that unions face."
---Sal Rosselli, ex-President, SEIU/UnitedHealth Care Workers-West


"Steve Early has long been a voice of distinctive clarity, honesty and intellectual seriousness in and about the labor movement. This collection performs a valuable service in bringing together a broad sample of his writing on class, politics, the trade union movement, its status and prospects. As always with Early's work, these essays are grounded in concrete history and problems. To that extent, they also provide a unique window onto the last several decades of evolving American political history. At a time like this it is all the more important to have the benefit of a voice like his."
---Adolph Reed Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania
