Praise

“Brilliant political analysis.″
The Nation

“Indefatigable reporting and elegant writing backed by an erudite command of the relevant history, and by precious on-the-ground experience as an organizer. Uetricht’s first book establishes him as the most exciting young labor writer today.”
—Rick Perlstein, author of Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America

“A short, accessible guide to one of the most important and inspiring events of our time.”
—Brian Jones, member of the Movement of Rank-and-File Educators

“A wonderfully readable, smart account of the CTU’s transformation into a democratic, militant union that with its community partners took on Chicago and the nation’s power elite.”
—Lois Weiner, author The Future of Our Schools: Teachers Unions and Social Justice

“An indispensable account of a strike that was badly misconstrued and underreported by the mainstream media. Uetricht not only tells the story lucidly, but explains why the struggle of teachers in Chicago should matter to all of us.”
—Liza Featherstone, author of Selling Women Short: The Landmark Battle for Workers’ Rights at Wal-Mart

“In this pithy and accessible book the author provides a passionate, well-researched and highly engaging account of the 2012 Chicago teachers strike.”
—Peter Brogan, Labour/Le Travail
