About this item

Historians have documented the half-century of violent conflict between labor and capital after the Civil War, says Ovetz, and moralists have judged it, but he focuses instead on the self-organization of workers in order to situate class struggle within the existing class composition. Nearly half of the book deals with the 1877 and 1894 railroad strikes because they illustrate the organizational and strategic transition of class struggle. He constructs a trajectory theory of political violence that analyzes not only the tactics and strategies of workers to self-organize to re-compose working class power, but also how capital designs its tactics and strategies in order to restore its class power.
