Review: The Man Who Hated Work

Robert Kuttner recently reviewed The Man Who Hated Work and Loved Labor: The Life and Times of Tony Mazzocchi, by Les Leopold, for The American Prospect. From the review:
As Leopold makes clear in a meticulously researched book, Mazzocchi was very much a radical. He involved himself with anti-war and civil-rights causes as much as with the labor movement. he often found himself at odds with with more conservative union leadership. He hoped to build a labor party. He fell narrowly short of being elected national president of his union, which today has merged into the United Steelworkers. And while hundreds of organizers cherished Mazzocchi as the most personally generous of mentors, his marital life was something of a mess. Leopold’s biography presents Mazzocchi warts and all, and through him an picture of the labor movement during an era of increasing corporate hostility and diminishing government protection or the right to unionize.
