Great book!!!! Aug 5, 2008
This book is a series of essays by various people in the workers' movement in Argentina. Some are better than others, but they all come together to give you a clear idea of what is going on. It is so heartening to see the workers, slowly but surely, winning their dignity and right to work to support themselves. The introduction is by Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis, who made a documentary of the workers' movement called The Take. If you can find a copy of that, watch it too! The book is an easy read -- I was so entranced I went through it pretty fast because I couldn't stop reading it.
Wave of the future? Mar 18, 2008
This book takes no particular ideological stands, but presents a phenomenon unique to Argentina(for now, I hope) which presents a promise to be an antidote to "free"-market globalism.
