    I.W.W. Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent: A Facsimile Reprint of the Nineteenth Edition (1923) of the "Little Red Song Book"

    $6.00

    Undoubtedly the most popular book in American labor history, the I.W.W.’s Little Red Song Book has been a staple item on picket lines and at other workers’ gatherings for generations, and has gone through numerous editions. The steadily mounting interest in Wobbly history and culture warrants this facsimile edition of a classic Little Red Song Book from the union’s Golden Age. Reprinted here is the Nineteenth Edition, originally issued in 1923, the year the I.W.W. reached its peak membership. Of the fifty-two songs in this book, the overwhelming majority have not been included in the I.W.W.’s own songbooks for many years. Here are such classics as Joe Hill’s “John Golden and the Lawrence Strike,” “We Will Sing One Song,” “Scissor Bill,” “The Tramp,” and others; T-Bone Slim’s “I’m Too Old to Be a Scab,” “Mysteries of a Hobo’s Life,” “I Wanna Free Miss Liberty,” and others; Ralph Chaplin’s “All Hell Can’t Stop Us,” “Up from Your Knees,” “May Day Song,” and more; and other songs by C.G. Allen, Richard Brazier, Pat Brennan, James Connolly, Laura Payne Emerson, and many others. Learn More

  6. The Union on Our Own Terms

    The Union on Our Own Terms

    $2.00

    This pamphlet is a compilation of the writings of Alexis Buss, who served as General Secretary-Treasurer of the Industrial Workers of the World from 2000 to 2005. These columns concerning minority unionism were originally written as articles for the IWW's newspaper, the Industrial Worker. Fellow Worker Joe Berry, an instructor at the University of Illinois in the Chicago Labor Education Program, put together the list of supplemental references. This pamphlet shows that a small group of workers, even a union of two, can effectively and unofficially keep the boss from putting his hand into our back pockets. Known as minority unionism, this method of winning better conditions is not about assuming strength in numbers or legal recognition, but in the solidarity of workers willing to act on their own behalf to gain controls over their jobs. Workers who recognize that their interests are distinct from those they work for will find this a historical, insightful, and most useful of all, a practical pamphlet to help them get around the more conventional methods of unionism that favor the bosses.
