Trying to Be for Labor When It’s Flat on Its Back

By Thomas Geoghegan
The New Press

In this edition of his widely acclaimed, National Book Critics Circle Award–nominated book, Thomas Geoghegan has updated his eloquent plea for the relevance of organized labor in America with an afterword covering the labor movement through the 1990s.

Funny, sharp, and unsentimental, Which Side Are You On? is both a compelling history of the rise and near-fall of labor in the United States and an idealist’s disgruntled exercise in self-evaluation. Called both “an intellectual and political coming-of-age story” by the Chicago Sun-Times, it is the ideal book for anyone who has ever woken up and realized, “I must change my life.”

“Reads like an enthralling novel”—Studs Terkel, author of Working
