Pressestimmen"Tell the bosses to go to hell and buy an extra copy of this wonderful history. Give it to an exploited friend or just leave it in a public place. On the centenary of the IWW, we should be replanting the seeds of rebellion." -- Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz and Planet of Slums. ""The Wobblies made a unique and remarkable contribution to American culture and the everlasting struggles for freedom and justice, with effects that reach very far, and should in the future as well. The excitement and inspiration of their creative and courageous work is brilliantly captured in this wonderful graphic history." -- Noam Chomsky, author of Hegemony or Survival.
