As an institutional, political,
        and cultural oral history of the struggle to unionize the River Rouge
        Plant near Detroit during the 1930s and 40s, this book affords us a rare
        insight into the difficulties of organizing a union in the face of the
        then anti-union Ford Motor Company. Against a backdrop of the depression
        and entrenched racism, history was made by courageous individuals whose
        rich, eloquent stories illuminate the character and views of others like
        them across the nation, from all backgrounds: left, right, and center;
        black and white; native and foreign born, Jew and gentile.
