A study of strikes and of those who initiate it, in particular the detailed social processes involved in the mobilization of strike action. "Through its detailed and systematic observation, this book throws an important new light on the strike phenomenon. It shows the reasons for and against strike action which are put by workers at the time, and links this to the more general nature of workplace organization. Thereby it serves to emphasize the continual and delicate balance between apparent industrial peace and manifest conflict."
