The Decline of the I. W. W.

Walsenberg (Colorado) IWW Hall, after attack on January 12, 1928

Despite its gloomy title, The Decline of the IWW is a lively account of the period 1917–1931 and a worthy successor to Paul Brissenden’s seminal The I.W.W. : a study of American syndicalism, which took the story up to 1917. During the period in question, the IWW had to deal with state repression, work out its relations with Communist organizations, survive internal splits, and compete with other forms of industrial unionism. Includes material on the IWW’s educational campaigns and industrial research, plus an extensive bibliography of IWW publications and periodicals.
