When Miners March (English Edition) Kindle电子书
"An extraordinary account of a largely ignored but important event in the history of our nation." Howard Zinn, author, "A People s History of the United States""
"A national treasure, a recovered gem of American history that should be required reading today. Never has a book been timelier; never has William C. Blizzard's inside account of his legendary father's march to liberate the Appalachian coalfields from the abuses of King Coal been more relevant." Jeff Biggers, author, "The United States of Appalachia""
"The placement of the Stickin' Tommy is one of several errors in the coal-related exhibits alleged by Harris, an author and state Labor History Association board member who was named last year's West Virginia History Hero for his work." "Gazette Mail" (Charleston, WV")""
"Current eventsnotably the struggle for unions to remain relevant and empowered, and coal's role in the climate change crisismake these writings both relevant and remarkable. The book underscores, among other things, both how far we have come in terms of labor protections and rights, and how far we have fallen in terms of workers' ability and willingness to take great risks and militant action." Kari Lydersen, editor, "In These Times""
"For the scholar and labor historian, "When Miners March" provides incredible insight into one of the most tumultuous times in our nation's labor history. For anyone who participates in any kind of labor force, the work illustrates how much we owe to the coalminers of Appalachia who lived, and often times died, to secure basic freedoms and rights for all workers in the United States." "Appalachian Heritage" (October 2011)"
""When Miners March" is the sweeping and heavily documented account of the Mine Wars from the governor's mansion to coal tipples as portrayed by the son of Bill Blizzard, the leader of the Red Neck Army - all told as the miners saw it." "Appalachian Journal" (January 2013)" --此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。
