Sheila Cohen – Ramparts of Resistance: Rank-and-file rebellions of the 60s and 70s

Topic(s): Lecture | No Comments

Date/Time: 11/04/2007 12:00 am


Sheila Cohen’s book, Ramparts of Resistance, examines the labor
movements in the US and Britain over the past generation. She
highlights the ups and downs of the period, from the rank-and-file
rebellions of the 1960s and 1970s to the anti-union counterattack from
employers and the state. Cohen argues that in both countries the key
to rebuilding unions can be found in the workplace, where rank-and-file resistance remains a persistent challenge to the powers
that be.
