In Solidarity Forever, a score of IWW's tell how they fought against injustice while advocating a new economic system in which production would be geared for the public good rather than for private. profit.
They speak at length of the life and culture of the modern working class during its formative years, often touching on historic labor struggles as well as more humble local conflicts. Told with vigor and humour, these first hand accounts attest to the IWW passion for mass education, popular culture, and grassroots democracy, and they reveal an IWW far more ideologically sophisticated than is generally acknowledged.
Historical essays preface these personal stories and place them in the context of IWW commitment to civil liberties, women's rights, organising the unorganised, and racial equality.
