Rebel Voices: An IWW Anthology. Rebel Voices could not be more compatible with this belief in the power of everyday workers to make dramatic change: it features IWW members and close allies speaking in their own voices about their experiences as workers, unionists, and, yes, as revolutionaries. No academic study has touched the brilliance of Rebel Voices and none ever will. Through these essays, poems, speeches, songs, and illustrations, I think you will come to appreciate what makes the IWW one of the world’s truly great labor unions with a profound vision and strategy to achieve a just world.

This is an extraordinary piece of working class history, that brings together articles, remembrances, documents, and all sort of material to give an account of the legendary IWW in their own words. Focusing on debates, strikes, role of women and immigrant communities, means of struggle and the evolution of the organisation, is a most vivid account that anyone interested in US working class history should read. But most importantly, it is a book that anyone interested in change today should read: a lot of the IWW ideas are fresh and pretty much alive, and their voice would be a most valuable contribution for those looking for social justice in the here and now.

"Rebel Voices" is a peerless collection of primary evidence on the Industrial Workers of the World, or Wobblies, our most exuberant labor radicals. It preserves a most diverse array of material, including pamphlets, newspaper articles and court transcripts, but also less conventional sources such as flyers, broadsheets, cartoons, and labor ballads. Kornbluh portrays the IWW as a dynamic, vital force fighting for workplace democracy and civil rights from 1905 to 1917, an era of bleak prospects for labor. The IWW ultimately succumbed to concerted government and employers' repression: violence, propaganda, punitive trials, and deportations. Many of the Wobblies' goals were later achieved through reform during and after the New Deal, but they left an inspiring activist legacy. The pictorial matter and music are especially revealing, and help illustrate the old adage that the government and bosses may have the money, guns and victories, but the workers have the best songs. Cf. M. Dubofsky, "We Shall Be All," a thorough narrative and analysis. More recent studies include G. Hall, "Harvest Wobblies," N. Sellars, "Oil, Wheat & Wobblies" and J.A. Lukas, "Big Trouble."

This work is simply unsurpassed as the best available on the IWW. Well written and very well illustrated, it's also a fine piece of scholarly research that remains accessible to nearly any reader who wants to know what real unionism once was--and it was not the Corporate State unionism of today. Not a single labor leader of any importance in the US believes that "The employing class and the working class have nothing in common" (the opening of the famous IWW preamble. The Labor Bosses of today deny that there are even significant contradictions with employers, thus deceiving the people who join unions thinking that is the very reason they send dues. The IWW's were internationalists, anti-racist, direct action oriented, and courageous--and Kornbluh's brilliant text, poems, songs, and photos will show you what they did.

It would be hard for anyone interested in radical labor history to ask for more from a book than comes with Rebel Voices. This collection is absolutely filled with songs, essays, poems, art and political cartoons from the Wobblies during their most crucial and influential years, and covers many major figures from Joe Hill to Sacco and Vanzetti, as well as the lesser known workers fighting for justice in the 20th century.
