Book Wish List

Here are several books that I have either seen references to or have read reviews about that I would storage-books1like to have and read sometime.

The books pertain to class, economic, and labor issues.

  • Labor and Monopoly Capitalism: The Degradation of Work in the 20th Century – Harry Braverman
  • Rules for Radicals – Saul Alinsky
  • Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disiater Capitalism – Naomi Klein
  • Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and a New Path toward Social Justice – Bill Fletcher and Fernando Gapasin
  • Subterranean Fire: A History of Working Class Radicalism in the United States – Sharon Smith
  • The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker – Steve Greenhouse
  • The Jungle: The Uncensored Original Edition – Upton Sinclair
  • The Working Class: America’s Best Kept Secret – Michael Zweig
  • Wealth and Inequality – Dollars & Sense (ed.)
  • What’s Class Got To Do With It?: American Society in the Twenty-First Century – Michael Zwieg

If you have read any of these books I would appreciate hearing from you and any comments you might like to make about them.

(Note: Saul Alinsky was the Chicago community organizer and labor activist that greatly influenced Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and their respective philosophies and approaches to community networking and political strategizing.)
