Comments/Reviews



Review(s): "A tale of obvious interest. ... Of special interest to labour historians in general. ... Great value." -- Economic and Industrial Journal

"In order to tell their story, Walsh and Mangum gained access to union officials and to documents, memos, minutes, and photos in the union's possession. The book performs the valuable service of making these documents available to a wider public. ... A useful contribution to the history of public sector labor unions." -- The Annals of the American Academy

"The book's most important contribution is its description of how the objectives of postal unionism evolved from lobbying to bargaining." -- Labor History

"The authors, experienced observers of the labor relations scene, perceive a problematic future for federal employee unions, like the APWU, which face budget crunches and privatization and are forbidden to strike. Biographical pictures; exhaustive name index. Undergraduate through professional." -- Choice

"Fascinating account of the rise of a union and of its president, Moe Biller. Biller's odyssey ... is traced in language colorful enough to do justice to its feisty subject." -- World History News

"This book's most important contribution is its description of how the objectives of postal unionism evolved from lobbying to bargaining." -- Labor History

"The book's most important contribution is its description of how the objectives of postal unionism evolved from lobbying to bargaining." -- Labor History
