Which Direction for Organized Labor? is an excellent collection of essays on crucial issues confronting the American labor movement.

— Kent Wong

With the decline of the labor movement in the United States over the past four decades, unions are facing the future with unresolved concerns over free trade agreements, dwindling memberships, and their own leverage with industry and government. Which Direction for Organized Labor? addresses critical questions facing the U.S. labor movements as it approaches the twenty-first century. It analyzes the overall state of organized labor and examines the direction it should take in rebuilding its strength and influence.

Bruce Nissen is a program director at the Center for Labor Research at Florida International University and editor of Unions and Workplace Reorganization (Wayne State University Press, 1997).
