Edited by Turner, Harry C. Katz, and Richard W. Hurd from the New York School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University, this is a brilliant follow-up to the 1998 anthology, Organizing To Win: New Research on Union Strategies (Cornell Univ.). It addresses the problems, prospects, and alternatives facing U.S. labor unions as they make the transition from the industrial union model of the 20th century to accommodate a workforce that is more diverse, multicultural, and transnational. The most interesting sections of this book eloquently discuss the revival of the U.S. labor movement, its transformation to social movement unionism, lessons learned from attempts to organize immigrant and previously underserved workers, the obstacles facing union leaders, the effects of previous union mergers, and the political, social, cultural, and economic challenges that face unions as they attempt to survive in a rapidly evolving business and economic environment. With essays by writers from diverse disciplines, this book is essential for both labor and business leaders who are challenged to understand and accommodate the needs of a rapidly changing and diverse workforce. Highly recommended for both academic and public libraries. Norman B. Hutcherson, California State Univ., Bakersfield
