A stirring biography of a hero in the struggle for economic justice and a book that probes the question: Whatever happened to labor liberalism in America?"Excellent . . . gripping. . . . Mr. Lichtenstein has produced more than a biography. He has given us an elegantly written and unfailingly intelligent portrait of American labor in the mid-twentieth century."--Alan Brinkley, "New York Times Book Review" "In an ideal union of scholarship and literature, Nelson Lichtenstein properly places labor leader Walter Reuther in the center of the most important social and political movements of the 20th century. This is an important book."--Julian BondA"A meticulously researched, clearly written and quickly paced story . . . a masterful portrayal of the social and political stage on which the labor leader performed."
