On Fighting for Total Person Unionism:

“The collaborative work of Calloway and Gibbons provides insight into labor at its postwar best and the path we must reclaim today. Total Person Unionism is a wonderful effort to reclaim that ground not only for historians but for all of us committed to economic justice and democracy.” —Larry Cohen, Former President, Communications Workers of America
