Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated black, white and maroon card covers."In Depression-era St. John's, times are desperate. People s alvage cast-o ff food from St. John's harbour, society matrons humiliate men on the dole,and families are ripped apart in the struggle for survival. A few men rise from the mire of despair and take on the British-run commission of governm ent, fighting desperately for jobs, dignity and respect. Pierce Power of Southside Road eventually leads thousands to storm Government House. It's a gripping play. And every word of it really happened. Painstakingly reconstructed from actual archival policfe notes, newspapers and other sources, Power of the Unemployed offers a rare glimpse into a little-known part of Newfoundland history."
