No Shortcuts

Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age

Jane F. McAlevey

  • Argues that meaningful change can only happen with organizing that puts ordinary people at the center of their own struggle: there are no shortcuts to lasting social change
  • McAlevey brings an informed, real-world perspective to the topic as a longtime activist, organizer, and scholar
  • Provides a clear analysis of power for movements and unions that often don't understand their own sources of power or how to use it effectively
  • Features case studies from a broad array of labor unions and social movements, including the Chicago Teachers Union which is gearing up for a showdown with the Governor of Illinois
  • The recent US Supreme Court cases such as Knox v. SEIU, Harris v. Quinn and Friedrichs v California Teachers Association demonstrate how the issue of unions, workers rights, and inequality will continue to be front and center in key debates in the USA.
