This is one of the best ways to look into the history of internationalist trade unionism I can imagine - apart from talking personally to witnesses, obviously. The essays in Dan Gallins book have been written over the course of many decades and reflect many debates in the 1950s and 1960s as well as in the 1990s and 2000s. Gallin sheds light on issues such as the "Third Camp socialism", making his position against capitalism and soviet stalinism very clear. His reviews of books, even if these are now 50 and more years old, still encite the hunger to read these, and include important political insights of those times. In the 1990s, he's energetically calling for a renewal of the international trade union movement. Topics like Organising, Andy Sterns SEIU, International Framework Agreements, the labour movements' policies on China are controversial - and Gallin takes very clear positions. always based on his strong priniciples and the conviction, that only solidarity and democracy can provide a way forward in the struggle for justice and equality. It's refreshing and encouraging reading, recommended for anyone interested in the international labour movement and its strategies.
