During a period when union density in nearly every sector was in deep decline, Jane McAlevey charged through a series of dramatic organizing and contract victories, drawing on unconventional tactics and a take-no-prisoners attitude. In this engrossing recollection of her time in the movement, McAlevey examines what labor has gotten right—and where it has fallen short. Her story shows that labor revival is not only necessary, but possible.
