Fuego subterráneo
Historia del radicalismo de la clase obrera en los Estados Unidos
Accessible, radical history of the U.S. labor movement examines the history of workers' resistance, in Spanish for the first time.

Workers in the United States have a rich tradition of fighting back and achieving previously unthinkable gains, from the weekend, to healthcare, to the right to organize a union.

Sharon Smith shows that a return to the fighting traditions of US labor history, with an emphasis on rank-and-file strategies for change, can turn around the labor movement. Fuego Subterráneo brings working-class history to light and reveals its lessons for today.

Sharon Smith is the author of Women and Socialism: Class, Race, and Capital.
