Review quote

"In these thoughtful, stimulating essays, Buhle moves effortlessly across time and space, exploring dimensions of working-class culture and radicalism that most historians have missed or misunderstood. Whether he's giving working-class republicanism a new twist, musing about the anarchist presence in American labor politics, or examining ethnic themes in working-class humor, Buhle proves over and over again that culture 'matters' and that class conflict is as American as grits and gravy. The book should be required reading for anyone interested in labor history, cultural studies, or social movements."-Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Race Rebels: Culture, Politics, and the Black Working Classshow more
