This book is destined to be a classic of labor history. The authors tell the story of an historic labor struggle, on the docks of Charleston but with ramifications around the world. They chronicle the voices of workers, cops, lawyers and politicians in a compelling narrative. The Charleston dockworkers' battles are, as the authors show us, part of a world-wide conflict, in which the only effective challenge to big business is worker power.
—Michael E. Tigar, lawyer and law professor

—Clayola Brown, President, A. Philip Randolph Institute
