    of The Big Strike by Mike Quinn(1st ed.1949)

    This book of Mike's is about a general strike that demonstrated the might of the rank and file. Economists, lawyers, financial advisers, and even the officers they elected to lead them, while valuable and truly important skilled tools, ran second to the united strength of the workers. Rank and file strength is shown for what is-indispensable. This principle remains eternally sound.
