Bureaucratic labor unions are under assault throughout the world. Most unions have surrendered the achievements of the mid-twentieth century, when the working class was a militant force for change throughout the world. The decline of labor unions has exposed workers throughout the world to capitalist absolutism, where trade unions are unable to defend workers’ interests.

Pretty okay survey of various labor struggles happening across the world that do not follow traditional models of unionism and/or espouse a radical leftist ideology. The analysis in most of the essays weren't particularly deep or even that interesting, but often tell interesting stories (particularly the essays on the IWW in the US and UK). Overall a good book if one is looking for an introduction to radical unionism.

4.5. A bunch of these chapters were very interesting. I most enjoyed the chapters on IWW organizing at Jimmy John's and the cleaners campaign in the UK because it was much more about the ground and less about overarching strategy. Without getting into that much detail, I'd highly recommend this compilation and am looking forward to reading more of Ness' stuff in the future.
