Solidarity Forever: an Oral History of the IWW
Compiled by Stewart Bird, Dan Georgakas, and Deborah Shaffer
Transcriptions of the interviews from which the film The
Wobblies was made featuring reminiscences by old-timers who
participated in the great struggles of the teens and twenties.
A score of IWWs tell how they fought against
these injustices while advocating a new economic system in
which production would be geared for the public good rather
than for private profit.

Wobblies! - A Graphic History
Edited by Paul Buhle and Nicole Schulma
A vibrant history in graphic art of the Wobblies, published
for the centenary of the founding of the Industrial
Workers of the World. The stories of the hard-rock
miners' shooting wars, young Elizabeth Gurly Flynn (the
"Rebel Girl" of contemporary sheet music), the first-sit-
down strikes and Free Speech fights, Emma Goldman and
the struggle for birth control access ... and much, much

The Truth about the Lynchlng of Frank Little
By Mike Byrnes and Les Rickey
This is the first book-length treatment of the August 1, 1917,
lynching of IWW organizer Frank Little during a miners' strike in
Butte, Montana. The authors have tracked down contemporary
historical records to offer a definitive answer to the question of
who killed Little, and why. A richly detailed narrative of the
event that transformed Butte and crushed the IWW presence
in Montana's mining industry.

About the IWW
The IWW is a union for all work-
ers, a union dedicated to orga-
nizing on the job, in our indus-
tries, and in our communties,
both to win better conditions
today -- and to build a world
without bosses, a world in which
production and distribution are
organized by workers to meet
the needs of the entire popula-
tion, not merely a handful of
We are a union open to all
workers (including students and
the unemployed), whether or not
the IWW happens to have repre-
sentation rights in your work-
place. We organize the worker,
not the job, recognizing that
unionism is not about govern-
ment certification or employer
recognition but about workers
coming together to address
common concerns. Because the
IWW is a democratic, member-run
union, decisions about what
issues to address and what
tactics to pursue are made by
the workers directly involved.
