From the cover: “Are the trade unions still potentially revolutionary organizations, or have they become a means of subordinating the working class to capitalism? This book questions fundamentally the aims and achievements of trade unionism. Tom Clarke and Laurie Clements have collected together analyses by both classical socialist theorists and modern radical sociologists of the role of the unions in capitalist society, in order to look critically at the unions themselves and at the social and economic structure surrounding them. After examining a revolutionary era in the history of worker organizations, and the recent impact of inflation and unemployment, the editors discuss the way in which the relationship between unionism and advanced capitalist society has changed.”
