"She has undertaken to prove incorrect the notion previously widely held that the labour movement militancy associated with modern Quebec was a feature born in the post-World War II period, By examing, through the tradition of oral history, several strikes in the thirties and forties in transportation, textiles and other important industries, and by recording the impressions and feelings of some of the surviving strikers, whether leaders or rank-in-file militants, she captures the mood of the period." - from the rear cover.
